This year we are running another series of our long-standing workshop that has so far designed and planted our Hot! Border in the walled garden, our ‘Oudolf’ border in front of the deck and the Sensory Border in the Herb Garden. This course is designed to build confidence in a range of gardening jobs and to think about how to make your garden different. The group maintains most of the ornamental planting around the garden.
Over the next 10 months we will be replanting the annuals in the Sensory Border, reorganising the Oudolf Border and editing the Hot! Border and the Gate Borders. We’ll be amending the sensory border cooperatively and you’ll have a chance to contribute. By the end, you’ll have participated in remaking four borders of different styles and have the confidence to tackle a makeover in your own garden.
This is a chance to follow the garden through it’s full year cycle. If you sign up for this workshop we expect that you will be able to attend the majority of the sessions.
The course takes place on the first Sunday morning per month from 10.00 until 1.00pm every month from October until July 2021. There is a £2 booking fee to deter speculative bookings. Once you have booked there are no further charges for the year.
There are also two other different workshops in our series – Border Workshop, Kitchen Garden and Productive Garden. At the moment, we are asking volunteers to sign up for only one of these as there are very many new volunteers.
