Event description

Description

Having long admired the wonderful Alpine Trough displays at the Chelsea Flower Show, we thought we’d love to have a go – so we have invited Wendy Bates from Rotherview Nursery near Hastings (which won a Gold Medal at Chelsea this year!) to run an Alpine Trough workshop here at the Garden House.

Wendy will demonstrate planting a Hypertufa trough. She will bring wonderful alpine plants from her nursery and highlight their care, aspect and site.

Starting with a general overview of the troughs, how they are made and what to plant, and her personal preferences, Wendy will then demonstrate two different ways of planting - traditionally with rocks and then using slate with a ‘crevicing’ effect.

Using the latter method, each participant will choose plants to use in his/her own planter – purchasing the finished Alpine Trough (the planter and alpine plants selected).

The workshop is limited to 8 participants.

Cost: £75, to include tuition and refreshments (cost of the Hypertufa planter and plants is extra).

Date: Thursday 17 October 2019 – 10am to 1pm
