LCGD Autumn Info Burst F – New Iconic Gardens

In 2011 we invited speakers to choose their iconic garden of the previous decade that will, in their mind, be the gardens we will still be talking about as landmarks in garden design in 20 years time.

This autumn 2022 we revisit this idea in a series of online ‘Info Burst’ webinars. Each of our six speakers will champion a garden, explore their choice, how the garden inspires them, tell us how they came to make that decision and why they think we’ll still be talking about their choice of garden in 2042.

Join us as leading designers from the UK, Australia, New Zealand and the USA take us on a journey of future new iconic gardens.

We will reveal the chosen gardens in September!

Nigel Dunnett is Professor of Planting Design and Urban Horticulture in the Department of Landscape Architecture at the University of Sheffield, and is one of the world’s leading voices on innovative approaches to planting design. He is a plantsman, designer and pioneer of the new ecological approach to planting gardens and public spaces. His work revolves around the integration of ecology and horticulture to achieve low-input, high-impact landscapes that are dynamic, diverse, and tuned to nature.

v Nigel’s work is based on decades of detailed experimental research, and widespread application in practice: he works as a designer and consultant and regularly collaborates with a wide range of other professions, and his work has been widely applied in the UK and abroad. In 2016 Nigel was appointed as an Ambassador for the Royal Horticultural Society, and is a former Garden Club of America International Fellow.

Our Info Burst seasons raise money for six horticultural charities in the UK and overseas – more details on our website.

Each Info Burst in this season will be individually scheduled with the UK and USA speakers delivered in the early evening, UK time and with the Australian and New Zealand speakers as breakfast webinars in order to be live in the evening in Australia and New Zealand. We start our UK and USA info bursts promptly at 5pm with a 45-60 minute presentation from our speaker and with some time for questions, finishing at 6.30pm.

Our Australian and New Zealand Info Bursts will be held in the morning to account for the time difference – details to follow but if you miss these live events we will be able to send you a recording.

The event will be hosted by LCGD Director Andrew Fisher Tomlin and LCGD Melbourne Director Brent Reid.

If you miss an event or are in a time-zone that makes it difficult to take part we are able to offer a catch-up recording – just contact the office on

All our Info Bursts are delivered remotely via online webinar and you will be sent an access code before the event. Each event counts as 1.5 hours CPD.
