Award winning garden designer, Amanda Patton gave a very interesting talk on the "Art of Planting Design" at the restaurant recently. Guests relaxed in our upstairs lounge area while enjoying a glass of wine before joining Amanda in the Stag Room. She presented a wonderful array of visuals including photography of gardens across the UK. Using these she was able to demonstrate how the planting was designed, explaining the important of tone and form amongst other areas.
The talk lasted over just over an hour before finishing with a question & answer session. Guests then enjoyed a special two course meal in the main restuarant allowing the opportunity for more informal chats and advise from Amanda. It was clearly an inspiring evening as the conversation around the restaurant was certainly focussed on gardening.
We are delighted that Amanda will be returning in early 2016 to give a talk on "Winter Gardens" Full details will be announced on the website in due course.
