For the Love of Plants: virtual lecture

Arne is giving a virtual lecture on Thursday 15th October as part of the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art (ICAA) Bunny Mellon Curricula.

Arne is known for his love of plants and uses them to create year-round structure in his garden designs. Pleached fruit creates a wonderful boundary feature, topiary adds drama and geometry and sculpted earthworks provide texture and layers that can be clipped or left to meadow, depending on the season.

In this online lecture, delivered live by Arne from Allt y bela, he will explain how he creates planted structure, talking us through some of his signature plants and explaining how he uses them in his designs. Using photos and short films from his own garden and some private gardens he has designed that are rarely seen by the public, this lecture will give viewers a personal insight into Arne's love of plants.


This lecture is free to view live for ICAA members. Find out more and register here.

A recording of the lecture will be made available to non-members via the ICAA website after the event.
