Surely the most sensual time in the garden is when it is in full bloom, a riot of rich colours and textures, buzzing with bees, and the air filled with scents and holding the prospect of succulent fruits and seed heads in the seasons to come.

Sex in the Garden is the theme of the spring conference of the Society of Garden Designers. It will bring together garden designers, researchers and horticulturists who will share their practical and inspirational approaches ranging from kitchen gardens, herbaceous borders and shade and woodland sites to open Mediterranean climes.

Speakers include Emma Desmier, Olivier Filippi, Noel Kingsbury, Michael Marriot and Henrik Sjöman, who will offer improved strategies in plantsmanship, review species selection for changing climate, biodiversity and maintenance regimes, and reveal how to make the most of scent and extend the season of flower and excitement based on the most reliable, spectacular and valued flowering and fruiting plants.

The Society of Garden Designers (SGD) has been championing excellence in garden design for over 30 years. It is the professional association for garden designers in the UK, and counts some of the UK’s leading garden and landscape designers among its growing membership.
