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.
High Summer at Bowood House
This July we are holding our first ever workshop at Bowood House in Wiltshire on July 19th. This stunning Capability Brown designed landscape is a real treat and our workshop includes an exclusive guided tour of the private Walled Garden. The July flower borders at Bowood are spectacular which makes the subject of our first workshop, Planning Planting, perfect timing. Don't miss it!
