Dr Kate Feluś is a historian specialising in gardens and their social history. For over twenty years she has been a consultant researching and advising on the restoration of historic parks and gardens, for both public and private owners.
In 2016 her The Secret Life of the Georgian Garden, was published by I.B. Tauris (Bloomsbury). It explains how the Georgians lived in the great landscapes of Capability Brown and others, enjoying banquets, boating and amorous liaisons in the shrubberies. The Times declared it to be ‘a pioneering work and an important addition to the literature of the country house. More than that it is a thoroughly entertaining read.’
Kate is currently writing for Yale University Press, My Lady's Garden, about the remarkable women who’ve created British gardens through history and the great garden designers they joined forces with.
Kate studied history at the University of Warwick and has a PhD from the University of Bristol. She lives in Sussex.
