Event description

Description

Take your ideas for a specific area in the garden and turn them into an actionable, professional planting plan. Tutor Neill Ludmon, experienced planting designer, will take us 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. It is not necessary to have attended to benefit from this more advanced workshop, but some plant knowledge is advantageous. Plenty of individual attention and help will be available and you will be able to consult Neill for advice via email afterwards if necessary. He will equip you with the knowledge, skills and equipment to create the planting effects you want.

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


On this course, you will:

  • Revisit the principles of of adapting planting designs to your individual terrain requirements
  • Revisit the principles of good planting design and the role of form, texture and colour
  • Measure up and draw your plan to scale for your area
  • Select plants suitable for your design
  • Place those plants within the scheme
  • Create an individual, finished planting plan for your garden
  • Revisit how to maintain and refresh the planting over time


This course is suitable for the non-professional gardener at all levels of experience in gardening with little or no experience of planting design but some knowledge of plants.


There will be a mix of activities, but the emphasis will be 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.

We will break for lunch halfway through the day but please note, lunch is not included in your ticket fee. Please feel free to bring a picnic or you will be able to purchase from a range of delicious lunch dishes in the Crocus at Dorney Court Cafe.

The workshop is taught by Neill Ludmon who is a specialist in the teaching of planting design. He now lectures at the Woottens of Wenhaston nursery in Suffolk and has his own planting design practice.
