Kew hosts show garden meeting

Leading show garden designers and contractors will share their experiences at a workshop at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew next month.

The joint Association of Professional Landscapers (APL) and Society of Garden Designers (SGD) workshop takes place on 25 September and is a chance to meet others in the industry.

APL chairman James Steele-Sargent and designer Amanda Patton will talk about their experience of working together to create the joint APL/SGD show garden for this year's RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show in July.

Landform Consultants managing director Mark Gregory and RHS chief assessor Andrew Wilson will offer tips on how to create a show garden.

During the workshop there will be time to visit the newly opened Rhizotron & Xstrata Treetop Walkway, which rises 18m in the air.

Kew's head of arboretum and horticultural services Tony Kirkham will explain the walkway's progress from initial concept to design, fundraising and construction.
