Planning Garden Borders
Does the planting in your garden run out of steam half-way through the season? Designing a garden full of plants that look attractive all year requires some forward planning. On this day long workshop we share the key tips and techniques that professionals use to keep gardens looking great all year round. We focus in particular on herbaceous perennials, the flowers that we rely on for months of colour in the border. At the end of the day, you will have completed your first planting plan and learned a straightforward method for doing the same thing for your own garden. A well worked out planting plan will save you money, no more expensive mistakes, and gives you the joy of a flower-filled border for most of the year.
