Planting the Piet Oudolf Way, in association with Gardens Illustrated

Few designers have had quite so much influence on garden design over the past 20 years as Piet Oudolf. Hosted by Oudolf and plantsman Noel Kingsbury, Planting the Piet Oudolf Way is an online course run by Learning with Experts, in association with Gardens Illustrated, that will give students a rare personal insight into Oudolf’s planting approach. Suitable for both beginners and design professionals, the course includes a video tour of Oudolf’s own garden and studio, advice on plant combinations and structure, and expert feedback on assignments that students can complete at their own pace.


The course will be accompanied by four assignments: plant structure, plant combinations, considering seasonality and plant suggestions for your region, which are aimed at encouraging students to go out and look at the plants that grow around them. Evaluation of assignments will be done by Noel who has known and has helped interpret Piet’s work for over twenty years.
