Autumn Webinar Series – Embrace the Exotic and Transform Your Planting Design
Andrew Fisher Tomlin CHort MCIHort
21st century planting design is stuck in a bit of a rut. You’ve heard the remark about Chelsea always looking the same? Well our gardens and public landscapes are heading the same way. If you limit your inspiration, you limit your choice. Whilst native flora and massed perennials can be great they’re not always that exciting and the challenges of climate change and engaging people and wildlife might pull us in other directions. So how can we be brave and embrace more exotic plants that fit our design narrative? This talk will look at processes to help stimulate and create more individual planting for our clients and ourselves in the future as well as highlighting some of the challenges that a more exotic approach might resolve.
