Event description
Adam Frost, from BBC Gardeners' World, will be bringing his passion for horticulture and design to Sheffield Botanical Gardens

About this Event

The Speaker

Adam Frost is a landscape designer, author, RHS Ambassador for education and community gardens, and a presenter on BBC television, including Gardeners’ World.

He credits his love of horticulture from his earliest childhood memories, to working with Geoff Hamilton at Barnsdale Gardens, before going solo in 1996 and designing multiple award-winning show gardens. He enjoys passing on his knowledge and travels all over the world speaking to people about his ‘journey so far.’

The Event

In this special event hosted by the Friends of the Botanical Gardens, Adam will talk about the process of designing a garden, focussing on how to approach the task without having to strip out everything and start with a blank sheet: more a gradual transformation than an instant garden makeover. The talk will be inspired in part by Adam’s experience of developing and nurturing his own 3-acre family garden in Lincolnshire.

Adam's talk will begin at 7.15pm and finish, after opportunities for questions from the audience, at about 9pm.

Copies of his books How to Create Your Garden, produced in conjunction with the RHS, and Real Gardens, about the memories and ideas behind his seven Chelsea Gold Medal winning designs, will be on sale. Adam will be available to sign copies from 6.30pm.

Location

An Evening with Adam Frost will take place in the Dorothy Fox Education Centre in Sheffield's glorious Botanical Gardens. The Centre is closest to the Thompson Road entrance, just off Ecclesall Road. Access to and from the Gardens will only be possible through the Thompson Road gates.

Disabled parking is available within the Gardens. Frequent buses run along Ecclesall Road and are the easiest way to reach the site.

Ticket Prices

Tickets for the event cost £15 plus a booking fee. A number of discounted tickets are available separately for Friends of the Botanical Gardens; see our website for details.

We expect this event to sell out in advance; please buy your tickets in good time to ensure a place.

“I love everything about gardens, whatever type of design or style. They connect people, space and plants – all of which I am passionate about. Our relationship with our environment enhances the quality of our lives and great gardens feed the soul.”
