A desire to reconnect with nature and bold colour schemes could soon be dictating garden design trends, garden designer Andrew Fisher Tomlin told delegates at a Landscape Centre seminar last week. Held at the Wyevale East Nurseries site near Swanley, Kent, the event gave garden designers the chance to hear sector leaders discuss various industry topics. Fisher Tomlin cited the emergence of the “slow gardening” movement as evidence that within garden design a simpler, more gentle philosophy was emerging. He also said he was encouraged by the growing interest in the concept of “third space” — a connection with nature that is separate from our home and work lives. Fisher Tomlin said that bright, sunny colours such as burnt red, oranges and yellows would become increasingly popular in garden-design schemes.
