Friday 21st January 7 pm – Zoom

Dan Hinkley Washington State USA

'The Forgotten Elements of Good Design; Texture, Movement and Fragrance’

Dan says this is a fun presentation because he can use digitally altered images to show the importance of textural relief in a garden and he uses some wonderful garden vignettes that we all need in the depths of winter.


Dan describes himself as a teacher, writer, lecturer, consultant, nurseryman, naturalist, gardener. Above all, he is committed to solid and sustainable horticultural practices, above average garden plants, landscapes of distinction and raising the collective awareness of the diversity of plant life on Earth as well as the magic and mysteries of our natural world.


We are using one of the many benefits of Zoom by having a well-known exceptional speaker from overseas without the additional travel costs. For those who have heard Dan speak before will know that this should be an excellent and interesting evening
