Vita Sackville-West – Garden Guru and Inspirationw/ Jim Dronenburg, ex-long time Behnke perennial employee

Join Jim as he introduces you to Vita Sackville-West, a prolific novelist and poet, who is remembered now for her garden writing, and for turning Sissinghurst Castle from a ruin and a trash dump to the most visited garden in England. The things she espoused and put into practice are as valid for us now as they were for her then.
