A once in a life time opportunity today - walking The High Line in New York City with its landscape designer/creator, Piet Oudolf, and his long term collaborator Dr Noel Kingsbury. Once a year Piet Oudolf re-visits The High Line to walk the entire walkway and discuss the plants and space with the gardeners and The Friends of The High Line to ensure that it is evolving true to the vision. This walk and talk inevitably involves exciting discoveries and discussions about the plants and the space, which is now used as a blue print for city planting all over the world. Professional footage taken during the walk is being used as part of a new online course with Piet Oudolf and Dr Noel Kingsbury, teaching you their secrets of maintaining perennials in such designs. Here is a little informal diary taken during filming. You can see the professional stuff on the course..
