Online social learning company, Learning with Experts, today launched a new online course by renowned Dutch gardener Piet Oudolf. The Garden Design course is based on the Vlinderhof Garden Design and Planting Plan. Vlinderhof is generally considered one of the most beautiful community gardens in the world. Vlinderhof (meaning Butterfly Garden in Dutch) is designed in the New Perennial style (from Dutch Wave). Clouds of perennials are combined with grasses and there is this almost natural interplay of heights, textures and colors, giving the extraordinary painterly feel of Impressionist art. “It is one of the greatest examples of Piet’s planting techniques, which gardeners and designers around the world continue to try to emulate.” The course includes exclusive access to Piet Oudolf’s design principles and plans, and offers personal commentary on student designs from his expert horticulture collaborator, Dr. Noel Kingsbury.
The new course is part of a collection of three Piet Oudolf Gardens courses that includes courses at Piet’s home garden in Hummelo and his perennial planting on the New York High Line.
