The Brown Advisor: 300 frequently asked questions about Capability Brown

Did you know there is a new blog called The Brown Advisor?

The blog has been devised to answer some of the many questions raised by the life and career of the great landscape gardener, or place-maker, Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown (1716-1783), whose tercentenary we celebrate in 2016. Questions and answers will be uploaded in batches until the blog is up-to-date. All contributions are welcome; all can be anonymous if contributors so prefer.

John Phibbs, editor of the blog, has been the instigator of these celebrations, and is proud to advise the many committees involved on all matters pertaining to Brown.

The blog can be access here:
