This workshop will take a very personal look at Nigel’s planting design philosophy and approach, drawing key principles from his studies of the dynamics and character of beautiful and dramatic wild vegetation, and translating those principles into creating ever-changing plantings with year round appeal. He will explain his methods of using colour and structure in successional layers of planting. The workshop will be fully illustrated with a wide range of examples of Nigel’s work, from the large through to the very smallest, but all created with the aim of creating an intimate and immersive experience of ‘enhanced nature’. The day will include a tour of the gardens and meadow grassland. Students will have the opportunity to share and discuss their interests and experiences of naturalistic planting.

10.00 – 16.30 Coffee, 2 Course Lunch, and Afternoon Tea included
