Biography

Nigel Dunnett is one of the world's leading voices on naturalistic planting design. He creates gardens and public landscapes that teem with plants and wildlife, bring multiple environmental benefits and enrich people's lives. Notable examples include the Beech Gardens and High Walk at the Barbican Centre in London (winner of the Landscape Institute's Planting Design Award 2018 and Fellows' Award 2018 for most outstanding project) and the London 2012 Olympic Park which first changed our perceptions about public planting. Nigel is dedicated to bringing his ideas and methodology to a wide audience: as ambassador of the RHS campaign 'Greening Grey Britain'; Professor of Planting Design and Vegetative Ecology at Sheffield University; and award-winning designer of show gardens at RHS Chelsea Flower Show (Gold Medal 2013) and Hampton Court Flower Show. He is author of several books on his specialist subjects and lectures at universities, design schools and plant societies throughout the world.
