We will be using the garden’s own 100 sq. m. ‘Hot!’ border in Brockwell Park’s walled garden as a model. The border was planted in 2015 and whilst the core planting will remain there is still work to be done. We’ll also be doing maintenance on the border and you’ll learn nursery and propagation skills. The course will cover both theoretical material and practical gardening – so there will be some digging and quite a lot of nursery work. In the spring you’ll get to propagate a few plants for your own garden from seeds or rhizomes or divisions. This year we are going to be using a limited palette of around 100 species of perennials.
During the fourth session session we will be looking at beginning to look at our 100 plant palatte and talking about planting strategies. We’ll also be continuing to put the Hot! border to bed.
This series of monthly workshops will run over an entire year and will cover all aspects of planning and maintaining an ornamental border. Each workshop will be 3 hours running from 10.00am on a Sunday morning once per month.There is a maximum of 16 spaces for this workshop so whilst tickets are free they are limited so please sign up for a free ticket below now if you’re interested
