In this month’s issue Andrew Wilson suggests that the process of designing a show garden is a concept that hasn’t changed much over the years. He asks whether a radical chance to the format is possible, and explores how events across the globe have redefined the genre. Whilst, Nick Coslett urges UK nurseries to grow more oaks in order to prepare for the future and explains why biosecurtiy standards need to improve.
We visit Austin Design Works, a company run by landscape architect Rachael Austin and her architect brother Matthew Austin, to find out more about its work. We also took a trip to Hannah Peschar Sculpture Garden for this month’s Feature Garden.
October’s issue also offers advice on building your online presence and the new conditions surrounding employment contracts and why it is important for businesses to take note.
