Event description

Description

This hands-on workshop is for those who would like to develop a planting plan for a specific area in the garden. It builds on the knowledge and activiites obtained in our introductory workshop Planting Design 1. By the end of the day you will have completed a planting plan in draft for an area up to 30 sq/m.



On this course, you will:

  • Carry out a site and soil analysis of the area to be designed
  • Measure up and draw your plan to scale for an area up to 30 sq/m
  • Design a planting scheme for the area using form, texture and colour
  • Work with plant lists to suit your individual garden conditions
  • Place plants within the scheme
  • Learn how to maintain and refresh your planting over time

This intermediate-level 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.


We will ask you to take a soil sample of your site in advance as well as carry out some basic measurements. Full instructions will be provided and no special equipment is needed. There will be a mix of activities on the day: lecture, Q&A, drawing and placing plants.

The group size is limited to 12 places to ensure individual attention is available from our tutor. You will also have access to him via email after the workshop for further tutorial if needed.


We will provide refreshments throughout the day and there will be a break for lunch halfway through. 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.
