Event description

Description

Join us to learn how to use shaping, thinning and staking techniques to prolong the flowering and encourage optimal size and form of your border plants.


This workshop will include:

  • Learn how to limit the size and control the flowering time of herbaceous perennials and woody plants.
  • Try hands-on staking and supporting methods using different materials.
  • Make your own supports using hazel pea sticks.
  • We will also cover planting gaps and other aspects of planting design such as succession and plant partnerships.

This workshop is for those who want to improve their existing borders by focussing on what they already have.


Our tutor for the day is professional garden consultant Stephen Relton. With over thirty years' experience Stephen has a wealth of gardening knowledge which he will share to give you the knowledge and confidence to take your borders at home to the next level.

Ticket price includes refreshments throughout the day but please note, lunch is not included. Please feel free to bring a picnic or you will be able to purchase from a range of delicious lunch dishes in the Crocus at Dorney Court Cafe.
