Arabella Lennox-Boyd to lecture at Wisley

Arabella Lennox-Boyd is to lecture at RHS Wisley on 5 August on 'the wider use of trees and shrubs in today's gardens.

Lennox-Boyd,aa six-time RHS gold medal winner at Chelsea Flower Show and designer of 400 gardens and landscapes during her 40-year career, believes trees and shrubs should be used more prominently in today's gardens.

In this lecture, taken from a landscaper's point of view, she will say how gardens once had few plants except from trees and shrubs. She will contrast this with today when sometimes their value is forgotten.

Lennox-Boyd says trees and shrubs are the building blocks of any landscape and she hopes the lecture will inspire landscapers and garden designers.

Tickets are £11 for RHS members and £20.50 for non-members from 0845 612 1253.
