Description

THE COURSE

Propagating new plants from your existing favourites is enormously satisfying and can save you a great deal of money. Using the gardens at Sculpture by the Lakes as our workshop, we will look at the different types of plants you can use for hardwood cuttings and those that provide seeds which can be sown during the winter months. Different techniques of breaking seed dormancy will also be covered as well as optimum times for sowing, compost types and watering regimes.

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.

MATERIALS FOR YOUR COURSE

You will need to bring light-weight gardening gloves or nitrile protective gloves as this is very much a hands-on workshop and you will be using composts and grit, as well as handling seeds and other plant materials. The course will be held in the unheated Potting Shed so please wear appropriate clothing for the weather and sturdy outdoor footwear.

Lunch, tea and coffee is included for all students, please advise regarding dietary requirements when booking or on the booking form.
