I shall be giving a talk to the Brentford & Chiswick Local History Society on the evening of Monday, 19 September. This takes place at The Chiswick Memorial Club, Bourne Place, London W4, just off Dukes Avenue, at 7.30pm, and the Society welcome non-members at their talks, admission free.

The talk will tell the story of the Greening family, established in Brentford End by 1710 and, 4 generations on, still working in horticulture in the 1790s. Skillful nurserymen, they were also contractors, garden designers and agents, serving the aristocracy and especially the royal family.
