Description

THE COURSE

Wildflower meadows bring so much joy to the garden and the landscape around us, giving a myriad of insects, including bees, moths and butterflies, a place to breed and forage, as well as offering a stunning show of flowers for us to enjoy. In this one-day workshop we will be looking at the different ways of maintenance to ensure a beautiful and long-lasting wildflower meadow, including when and how to cut and the different methods of introducing new species.

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.
