Join RHS medal winning garden designer Paul Herrington for a fun and relaxed course over four one-day sessions to help you design or re-think your own garden. Paul will share his top tips and skills to help you to make a start designing your own garden.

The course is designed for absolute beginners.

Session 3 (13 Oct) What goes where: developing a basic layout plan for your garden.

Session 4 (3 Nov) Right plant, right place: the basics of creating planting plans for year round structure and interest.
