The horse and transplanter tours will set off from outside the Nash Conservatory
Come and see the oldest surviving tree transplanter in the world in action here at Kew. Capability re-landscaped gardens using the horse-powered tree transplanter, which was used to uproot trees of up to 20m tall and transport them as far as 32km at a time.
Visitors will have the opportunity to look back to the Georgian period and discover Capability Brown’s revolutionary gardening techniques.
There will be a Capability Brown actor accompanied by his workers and a bell crier for good measure.
