About this event

An informative day based in the delightful Stockton Bury Gardens in Herefordshire looking at the basic principles of garden and planting design to give you the confidence to reinvent your own garden space.

Your tutors for the day are RHS Chelsea Gold Medallist garden designer Olivia Kirk and RHS judge and gardener Tamsin Westhorpe. This course is supported by the London College of Garden Design.

The day is aimed at both keen and new gardeners who have come to appreciate how much gardening means to them during the pandemic and would like to learn more. Some knowledge of garden plants would be useful but by no means necessary.

The course will be invaluable to anyone wanting to design their own garden or simply refresh a specific area. We will discuss different 'problem areas' - how to deal with long, thin plots, what to plant in a shady area, and tricks to make the smallest space look bigger.

You will be part of a small group of no more than 12 with the day based in the garden and garden class room (please note that there are 2 steps down into the classroom). We will start with coffee in the café then move to the garden class room and later the garden to look at different plant combinations and planting styles, as well as looking at how different spaces are created, views framed and where the best places are to have a seating areas.

A voucher for lunch is included in the price of your ticket so we can all sit down together and talk over lunch. Once the teaching day is finished after lunch you are free to have a wander around the garden at your own pace.

Arrive at 9.45am for coffee. Formal teaching ends at 1pm. This is followed by lunch and the chance to enjoy the garden.
