Gardening course at Scampston Hall, Yorkshire

The Immersive Experience with Nigel Dunnett will take place on Thursday 12 October between 10am and 4.30pm, tickets are £90 per person.

In association with Gardens Illustrated, Scampston Conservatory will be hosting a full day workshop with renowned garden designer Nigel Dunnett. The workshop will explore the immersive experience: dynamic planting design at the human scale.

This workshop will take a very personal look at Nigel’s planting design philosophy and approach, drawing key principles from his studies of the dynamics and character of beautiful and dramatic wild vegetation, and translating those principles into creating ever-changing plantings with year-round appeal.

He will explain his methods of using colour and structure in successional layers of planting. The workshop will be fully illustrated with a wide range of examples of Nigel’s work, from the large through to the very smallest, but all created with the aim of creating an intimate and immersive experience of ‘enhanced nature’.

The day will include a tour of the gardens at Scampston. The workshop will run from 10am to 4.30pm including a two-course lunch. Coffee will be available beforehand from 9.30am and tea and cake afterwards from 4.30pm, so there will be plenty of time to wander around the Walled Garden and buy plants.

Tickets can be purchased online: www.gardenmasterclass.org.uk

Nigel Dunnett is a Professor of Planting Design, Urban Horticulture and Vegetation Technology in the Department of Landscape, University of Sheffield. He has pioneered the use of innovative approaches to landscape planting, and in the multi-functional use of vegetation in the built environment.

Nigel has regularly staged main show gardens at the Chelsea Flower Show (Gold Medal 2013) and also created the RHS garden at Chelsea in 2017.
