Talk: Designing a Show Garden

Hugo Bugg excels at designing show gardens, and this will be the subject of his talk at the next meeting of the society on Wednesday August 28th at 7.30pm. He runs an award-winning garden design practice whose work ranges from contemporary roof terraces and urban courtyards to country gardens and public spaces.

Twenty-six-year-old Hugo grew up near Uplyme, where his parents still live, and was a pupil at Woodroffe School. He studied garden design at Falmouth University. He was named Young Designer of the Year by the Royal Horticultural Society, and has won two Gold medals at prestigious RHS flower shows including Hampton Court Palace and Tatton Park where he also won Best in Show. His recent commissions include designing a tropical landscape within the futuristic new science museum of Trento, Italy, a building created by visionary architect Renzo Piano.

Following his talk, there will be an opportunity to ask questions and meet fellow gardeners and plant enthusiasts. Everyone is welcome; admission is free for members, £2 non-members, and refreshments will be available. The venue for this meeting will be Woodmead Halls in Lyme Regis.
