Booking is now open for The Beth Chatto Symposium, a special gathering of gardeners, designers and plantspeople in honour of Beth’s 95th birthday and the 40th anniversary of her first book, The Dry Garden. 

Join us at the University of Essex on 30-31 August 2018 to hear speakers from around the world that are re-imagining ecological planting in both design and practice, and working to expand our plant palette.

Since 2015 the foundation “Stiftung Zukunft NRW” annually awards “excellence scholarships for gardening culture.”.

Every year, four young gardeners have the opportunity to participate in care and development of horticultural projects in major gardens and nurseries.

Our company takes part in this programme and – from August to October 2018 –  will give a scholar the opportunity to work practically in our HORTVS. We will individually train and support the scholar in order to deepen and expand his core competencies of gardening in an optimal way. 

The scholarship holders will be selected by an independent and qualified jury of experts nominated by the foundation “Stiftung Zukunft NRW”.

In the spring edition 2017 of the magazine GartenTräume the author Kathrin Foerst presents the newest public garden by Peter Janke. In the historic setting of Fasanerie Palace (Eichenzell near Fulda) Peter Janke designed a strictly geometric garden with accentuated natural planting. He combines his design concept with two steel cultures specifically created for this garden by the minimal artist Stefan Siebers from Cologne.
