Caroline Thomson, Backhouse Rossie Heritage and Education Centre

This talk entitiled “The Backhouse Heritage Daffodil Collection at Rossie-Estate, Fife, Scotland – A Unique Insight”, provides insight into the Backhouse Family of Quaker daffodil raisers spanning three generations over 150 years, interwoven with information from family diaries, garden notes and letters to locate and preserve her family’s work for future generations. Illustrated with many photos of the restored Victorian Walled garden, we will see the National Collection of Daffodils as well as views of the gardens.

Our speaker Caroline Thomson runs the Scottish National Daffodil Festival being held on the 14 and 15 April in Fife. She is the founding director of the Backhouse Rossie Heritage and Education Centre and Chairman of the environment group Green Link. Caroline is currently founding the Quaker Garden Trail across the UK, advertising and gathering member gardens with past or current Quaker connections.  Caroline worked as an Interior designer founding her own Interior Design Company in 1990 but realised she was often asked for advice on the garden space beyond the curtains, thus the beginning of a lifetime’s interest in gardens, their importance to our wellbeing and the delights of good garden design.
