A series of short day courses designed to give you more detailed information about specific aspects of garden styles. With a varied programme from ponds to prairies, we will have the opportunity to look at both design and planting.
What can students expect?
Expect a supportive atmosphere where your ideas will be encouraged; you will not be expected to know Latin plant names.
You will be introduced to a range of plants and design ideas suitable for creating an area within your garden that has enhanced sensory appeal.
This session is also suitable as a starting point for those wishing to create a sensory garden for a school etc.
A pen and paper for note taking. Additional notes are often sent via email so it is helpful if learners have an email address although this is not essential.
Previous experience required?
No. Experienced plants people should note that the plants discussed are not necessarily rare or exotic.
What is the progression route?
Learners might like to select another of the Garden Styles courses or choose something like pruning or tree identification.
Are there any extra costs?
What should students bring?
A packed lunch.
Presentation by the tutor: slides will be shown to illustrate certain plants or design ideas.
Learners will learn through discussions with the tutor and other students, and will be shown a variety of plants to handle.
Learners will be encouraged to share their experiences of their gardens.
