- DURATION 60 mins
Alan recognises the need to find the best position and conditions in his high-altitude garden in Derbyshire for every plant. He traces the seasons with dramatic photography in the spectacular garden landscape and shows how fabulous plants can be when conditions are right. His perception is that when a garden has the chance to become established it develops a harmony and balance that can give enormous satisfaction and peace of mind. His pictures of the quiet places in his garden shows that it can be the perfect place to celebrate nature, to relax, reflect and even meditate on its beauty.

Preparing for the Event
For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).
We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!
What if I can’t make the event?
If a recording’s available for the event, you can still register for it and we will send you an email with a link to a recording shortly after it ends.
Will my camera be on and will I be visible to the other people?
Your camera and microphone does not need to be on for you to enjoy your Mirthy event. The choice about whether to do this is completely yours.
