Event description

Description

Good planting doesn’t happen by accident, nor by a horticultural love of plants, but instead through deciding before beginning what effect the planting is intended to achieve, and which tools (plants) will best serve that purpose. Demonstrating her approach to planting design from an artistic perspective, Amanda will show how the principles and elements of art can be applied to planting design and why line, form, and value are more important than individual flowers. By understanding the way the elements can be harnessed and manipulated, garden creators are able to enhance mood and create that all-important sense of place.

A short reception will follow the program.
