Description
Nigel is inspired by the wild, by the experience of nature. It’s a strong emotional response. In this presentation he will describe how he works with perennials in design contexts to create dramatic, very long-season “low input-high impact” landscapes and gardens that recreate the positive uplifting immersive emotions of being surrounded by beautiful and breathtaking flowering nature.
