Designing Boarders @ Virtual talk on line
Feb 1 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Tuesday 1st February – 7pm (GMT)

Speaker: Libby Russell

The talk with Q&A will last approximately 60-90 minutes.

Details of how to access the talk will be sent in the purchase confirmation email.

The border, whether traditional herbaceous, mixed or planned for seasonal succession, is perhaps the most cherished feature of English gardens. Understanding how to plan and put together a border – whether large or small – from its overall size and structure to shape, colour and plant associations, is a major achievement for any gardener. 

Garden designer and plantswoman Libby Russell, who opens her garden at Batcombe House in Somerset, has been designing and planning borders for nearly thirty years. In her talk she will demystify creating borders, explaining how the best results are achieved by having a plan and sticking to it. Libby’s love – and encyclopaedic knowledge of – perennials will be evident as she demonstrates the best use of different plants and plant associations. 

This is a talk that will empower any gardener to make the best of their own garden, demonstrating the simple principles that assist the creation of a border and presenting a feast of planting ideas.
