Description

THE COURSE

This practical design workshop will cover how to get the best from your garden no matter the size, from setting out the garden to get what you want from it, to selection of plants and materials. Through a series of exercises, you will follow the different stages of designing a small garden, concentrating on the layout and then focusing on planting and hard-landscaping aspects.

TUTOR

Thomas Stone has been gardening since leaving school in 1989. Based in Hampshire, he is a creative, seasoned and innovative horticultural expert with specialism across roses, shrubs, pruning, gardens and wildflowers. Starting as a YT student at Mottisfont Abbey Gardens, Thomas went on to join The Sir Harold Hillier gardens, returning to Mottisfont a few years later where he advanced to acting head gardener. As Head Gardener he has also redeveloped private gardens in West Sussex and Hampshire. A member of the Professional Gardeners Association, Thomas is now a freelance horticulturist specialising in roses, pruning, including topiary, border care and wildlife gardening.
