Stephen Lacey can be booked for lectures in UK and internationally. He travels widely for work and pleasure, seeing a huge number of gardens and meeting many of the world’s top designers and gardeners. He is particularly interested in planting design, exploring the different styles and trends, contemporary, traditional and naturalistic, and following their cross-currents across Europe, America and beyond. He is a frequent lecturer for the Royal Horticultural Society, the Hardy Plant Society, the Inchbald School of Garden Design and the English Gardening School. He has done several lecture tours for the New York Botanical Garden and Horticulture Magazine, and has lectured for botanic gardens and garden clubs in New York, Long Island, Washington DC, Boston, Chicago, Pennsylvania (Longwood), Seattle, Portland, California (Filoli), Denver, Atlanta, Charleston, Davidson and Raleigh NC, Tennessee and Indiana. He often lectures in Canada, including Vancouver, Victoria , Toronto and Hamilton, and has done lecture tours in Australia and New Zealand.

He has also lectured on gardens and natural history for Swan Hellenic around the Mediterranean, the Middle East and South-east Asia. His design project in Mallorca, allied to his travels around Italy, Spain, Greece and France, is inspiring new lectures. And he is also an enthusiastic tropical traveller, keen on rainforests and ornithology. He has visited East, North and Southern Africa, Central and South America, Malaysia, Indonesia, Australia and Papua New Guinea, and has written about the plants, animals and ecology of the Amazon and the Caribbean for The Daily Telegraph.
