An absolute treat for anyone who loves both flowers and gardens we have included your own guided tour of Lord and Lady Lansdowne’s private walled gardens to one of our Autumn posy workshops. Only booked tours are given access to this 4 acre walled garden which is remarkable for its ornamental planting and includes a fabulous double herbaceous border. Combined with a delicous lunch this makes a wonderful day out. Plus your ticket includes entry to the grounds so you can enjoy the rest afternoon exploring the estate.
We start the day by spending a relaxing morning learning how to make a beautiful hand tied posy using beautiful Autumnal flowers plus seasonal delights like hips, haws, berries and seedheads. With step by step guidance you can take your time, crafting your own unique bouquet of seasonal blooms. You will learn our top tips for the spiral technique, widely used by professional florists but straightforward to master. This technique keeps your flowers in place when they are dropped into a vase. We also share a quick and simple way to wrap your bouquet so that it becomes a perfect gift. We break for a delicious leisurely lunch and continue the afternoon with our own personal guided tour of Lord and Lady Lansdowne’s 4 acre private walled garden. A special day out for all flower and garden lovers.
