Dan Pearson and Laura Gatti will be keynote speakers at Palmstead Nurseries’ forthcoming Soft Landscape Workshop, where they will talk about vertical forests and gardens on structures.

Dan Pearson, the RHS multi-award winning landscape designer and Laura Gatti, agronomist and co-designer of the ‘Bosco Verticale’ (Vertical Forest) in Milan, will speak about increasing biodiversity in design, selecting the right plants and trees for vertical, balcony and roof schemes as well as looking at the reasons why the industry needs to look in greater depth at greening every surface.

In addition, leading independent soil scientist and landscape engineering consultant Tim O’Hare has been invited to speak at Palmstead’s Soft Landscape Workshop in January and hopes to share the secrets to success enjoyed in his portfolio of projects which include: the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Battersea Power Station, Jubilee Gardens, Terminal 5 Heathrow and Ascot Racecourse.

Palmstead’s Soft Landscape Workshop will be held on Wednesday 24 January 2018 at the Ashford International Hotel in Kent. Click here to learn more or to book a space.
