Between us, we have designed and built over 100 gardens. On this half-day workshop we will spill the beans and reveal the plants that we rely on to work well in any garden. We will explain how understanding the six layers of planting that occur naturally in any English garden can help you design successful planting. The course looks at trees, shrubs, herbaceous perennials, climbers, bulbs and groundcover planting, suggesting reliable plants for each layer. We finish up by talking about the essential steps for getting plants established, as even the most bomb-proof plant will struggle without a little care and attention when it’s young.
By July the garden should be blooming, with a good choice of flowers and foliage to cut for the house regularly. It's time to cut back some early performers to stop the garden looking tired but there should be months of flowers still in store. Book onto our July 12th Failsafe Plants course to save money on expensive plant failures and don't miss our exclusive Hanham Court workshop on July 18th. On July 24th we are running our very first Creative Plans workshop which shows you how to plan your garden layout.
