Seminar, Planting design for heritage gardens 15th September

Approaches & Practice, A seminar with Andrew Fisher Tomlin

Much is written and reported about new movements in planting design but we ignore the impact of heritage gardens and planting at our peril. Many historic gardens pass the test of time not just by presenting planting from a particular period but also by remaining relevant through the introduction of new planting design and ideas.

Over the past 20 years Fisher Tomlin & Bowyer have been commissioned to work on heritage sites in the UK and overseas, each one different and with their own unique stories. Gardens range from modern designs for the National Trust of St Vincent’s library in the Caribbean to the newly opened Veitch Heritage Garden at Warren House in Coombe Wood and the historic Liseberg Park in Sweden. With reference to these and other gardens and landscapes he’ll explore different approaches, whether historic or contemporary to planting design in heritage gardens and landscapes with practical solutions for making these gardens work within modern day constraints of budgets, maintenance and future.

This day is completely FREE of charge with breakfast and lunch included
