Seeds of Change – Planting Design for the 21st Century
Our gardens should be a haven of biodiversity, a refuge from the world, not only for ourselves but for the rest of the wildlife with whom we share the earth. It is something we all aspire to, but the reality can be somewhat different. Every plant we plant produces plastic waste in the form of pots and labels, our composts may contain peat and the plants we choose may have travelled a long distance bringing with them the risk of introducing alien pests and diseases.
Trying to be greener isn’t easy and it leaves us with many questions: Has the prevalence of pot grown plants influenced our entire approach to planting design? Are there other ways to plant or perhaps sow a garden? And when planted how do we maintain that garden without the use of pesticides and herbicides? Does nature herself have the answer? Our speakers this year will address some of these challenges, finding the answers through their passionate interest and research spent experimenting and working with plant combinations, with nature as a guide. Cassian Schmidt, Sandro Cafolla, Nigel Dunnett and Sarah Price all work at the cutting edge of planting design and they will share with us their insights into new approaches to resilient and biodiverse planting for the 21st Century.
