Led by Iain Parkinson, Wakehurst’s Conservation and Woodlands Manager, and other staff at Wakehurst Place this day will consider the restoration of wild habitats, including meadows and hedgerows. Presentations and site walks will explain how protecting and conserving natural features help both to safeguard the ‘spirit of place’ and enhance the visual appeal of introduced plant collections within a designed landscape.
Attendees will learn about the newly completed ‘designed landscape plan’ for Wakehurst.
