The bulk of Robinson’s money was made in London real estate, I learned from one of the books on Gertrude Jekyll. Obv that takes some capital to start, which came from his writing/publishing. But the kind of money it took to develop Gravetye came from real estate.
I’d so love to have lunch there someday, which gives you a chance to explore the gardens, but it’s unlikely to happen. Videos are the next best thing, and yours are consistently rewarding. Thanks so much!
Thanks for that v useful information Nell. I had no idea about the Real Estate. Would love to find that source.. Do you remember which biography of Jekyll contained it? Oh, and we had lunch there in September this year. Spectacular
