Former Woodroffee Scool pupil Hugo Bugg will talk about his work as a top garden designer

An award winning garden designer will talk about his work at the next meeting of Uplyme and Lyme Regis Horticultural Society on Wednesday, August 28, at 7.30pm.

Hugo Bugg, 26, grew up near the village, where his parents still live, and was a pupil at Woodroffe School, Lyme Regis. He studied garden design at Falmouth University.

Now he runs an award-winning practice whose work ranges from contemporary roof terraces and urban courtyards to country gardens and public spaces.

He was named young designer of the year by the Royal Horticultural Society, and has won two Gold medals at prestigious RHS flower shows including Hampton Court Palace and Tatton Park where he also won best in show.

His recent commissions include designing a tropical landscape within the futuristic new science museum of Trento, Italy, a building created by visionary architect Renzo Piano.

His talk takes place in the Woodmead Halls, Lyme Regis and afterwards there will be an opportunity to ask questions and meet fellow gardeners and plant enthusiasts.

Everyone is welcome and admission is free for members, £2 non-members. Refreshments will be available.
