7. Garden alchemy: lessons in plant design
Plants are what create the atmosphere, the intrigue and the alchemy within a garden. Here, Sarah Price lifts the lid on design processes in which planting takes centre stage. Hear how Sarah uses vegetation as the building blocks for her designs, maximising plant diversity, ecological resilience and beauty to create exciting environments that are havens for both people and wildlife.
Sarah is an award-winning garden designer. She co-designed the 2012 Gardens at London’s Olympic Park and was a planting consultant for LDA Design on the post-Games legacy design. Sarah won Gold Medals at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in 2012 for the Daily Telegraph Garden and in 2018 for M&G Investments. In 2016, she was awarded ‘Garden Columnist of the Year’ by the Garden Media Guild for her monthly series on landscape design for Gardens Illustrated.
