Evening Meeting – Speaker Lucy Hartley Garden Designer “Designing a Border from Scratch”




Knightcote Village Hall



Designing a Border from Scratch Part I – Principles and Pitfalls of New Border Design

This Talk is the first of a series of three. Each Talk has a different focus and is packed with enough information to stand on its own. Part I is less ‘Right Plant, Right Place’ and more Design and Planning advice; i.e. what you need to think about before making specific plant choices. It is a short course in the art of how to plan for a beautiful mixed border with some tips and some warnings of common pitfalls to look out for along the way.

Lucy Hartley began her professional life as a secondary school science teacher and taught for seven years before starting a family. Lucy’s mother is a keen gardener, as was her grandmother and Lucy has followed in their footsteps. She has always enjoyed art as a hobby. On returning to work Lucy chose to combine these interests and re-train as a garden designer.
