Creating Movement Whilst Frozen Still

A talk by Ben Pope. Attend in person in Cobham or via Zoom.

A seasonal talk looking at the winter garden and how to achieve movement and interest during the cold months. The talk begins by looking at what gives a garden structure, interest and movement during winter, whilst exploring how to develop it. It then moves onto identify plants that are of interest during the winter months, detailing any specific cultural needs or aesthetic uses.

Alongside his role as Head Gardener at a private garden in West Sussex, Ben enjoys lecturing at the Chelsea Physic Garden for The English Gardening School and West Dean College of Art and Conservation. He has recently gained the RHS Master of Horticulture and is a member of the RHS Herbaceous Committee. He also regularly writes for Gardens Illustrated and other publications, as well as delivering talks to gardening clubs and organisations such as Gardens Masterclass and The Society of Garden Designers.
