The Rabbit's Eye View: A Look at Long Term Plant Performance
This full-day garden-based workshop by renowned plantsman Noel Kingsbury aims at encouraging participants to observe garden and landscape plants, focussing on their growth through the year, looking at how they compete with each other, how to assess prospects for their longevity and their suitability for a variety of garden locations. Gardeners and designers can then use their experience and knowledge of plants to plan for the maximising of interest and the minimising of maintenance at all seasons. Noel aims to get people thinking about how plants are linked to their natural habitats and ecology and how this connects to the way we use them in gardens.
