Description

THE COURSE

Helping wildlife out within your garden is both rewarding and of tremendous value to the myriad wild creatures which live around us. In this one-day workshop we will be looking at the various ways you can help wildlife by creating a safe and fertile oasis in which they can live, feed and breed. Winners of the 2018 Dorset Wildlife Trust’s Wildlife Gardening Awards, the gardens at Sculpture by the Lakes show the many ways in which we can achieve a rich habitat for wildlife.

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.

MATERIALS FOR YOUR COURSE

Please bring a pad and pencil with you if you wish to take notes and remember that we will be outside, or in the unheated Potting Shed, for much of the day so you will need to bring appropriate clothing and sturdy outdoor footwear.
