Introduction to Horticulture - Study Days

Introduction to Horticulture - Study Days new


These sessions are designed to give you a range of horticultural skills and enable you to get hands on with plant material to gain the confidence with your own trees, plants, shrubs and all areas of garden maintenance. The perfect introduction if you are not sure where, when or how to get started in your own garden.

Numbers are usually limited to 25, so there is an emphasis on attendees to ask questions and promote discussion within the group. Study days are usually held in our Camilla House and the practical elements are performed in our award winning landscaped garden. All study days are delivered by RHS qualified Gardeners and other experts from their respective fields. Book an individual session or the entire course.
