Talking at Mueller Hall – Garden Designs of Peter Donegan
Wed, 22 Mar 2023 – 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM
This year’s Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show will feature Peter Donegan, an internationally renowned horticulturist, garden designer and speaker. His practice was borne in 2001 and very swiftly achieved acclaim winning a host of awards for 17th & 18th century gardens & show gardens at national competition.
In 2018, Peter was one of 14 designers selected to design gardens at historic locations to commemorate the centenary of the ending of World War 1. The peace garden, Jardin Eutychia (after the Green Goddess of Happiness) was realised at Chateau de Péronne, home to Europe’s largest war museum within the 13th century French castle, in the Somme region of Northern France. Peter returned in 2022 to realise and his second inaugurated design at the Chateau, Jardin Philophrosyne, an internal courtyard within the medieval buildings, that features an extraordinary herbarium of world war medicinal plants.
Come hear Peter talk to us of these two extraordinary designs and provide a sneak peak of his high-anticipated Show Garden that opens a week later at the Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show.
