Description

Planting Design 2 - Create a Professional Planting Design

This entry-level course is suitable for those with little or no experience of planting design, but some plant knowledge is advantageous.

Take your ideas for a specific area in the garden and turn them into an actionable, professional planting plan. We will take you through the necessary steps to draw up a detailed plan for an area of up to 30 sq.m.

This full-day, practical workshop builds on the introductory Planting Design 1 session run in May, although it is not necessary to have attended the first workshop to benefit from this more advanced workshop.

We offer a 20% discount of the ticket price of Planting Design 1 and Planting Design 2 when booked together.

Plenty of individual attention and help will be available and you will be able to consult the workshop host for advice via email afterwards, if required.



In this workshop, you will learn:

  • The principles of adapting planting designs to your individual terrain requirements

  • The principles of good planting design and the role of form, texture and colour

  • How to measure up and draw your plan to scale for your area

  • How to select plants suitable for your design and place them within the scheme

  • How to create an individual, finished planting plan for your garden

  • Revisit how to maintain and refresh the planting over time


There will be a mix of activities on the day, with the emphasis on selecting plants and drawing up plans with help from your tutor. At the end you will take home your plans together with the drawing equipment used to enable you to continue working on your plan and creating others at home.

Cost includes all materials.

We will break for lunch halfway through the day, but lunch is not included in your ticket fee.

You will be able to purchase from a range of delicious lunch dishes in the Crocus at Dorney Court Cafe, or, if you prefer, please feel free to bring along a picnic!


Hosted by Neill Ludmon, plant design specialist

Neill is a specialist in the teaching of planting design who lectures at the Woottens of Wenhaston nursery in Suffolk and has his own planting design practice.
