Courses & Talks 2013

We are just putting the finishing touches to our truly exciting 2013 What’s On brochure, that will detail over 50 courses including new offers in beginner botany, plant photography and garden writing, wood block printing, knitting flowers and Tudor garden history! All sitting alongside our well established botanical illustration, gardening and plant identification courses.

The full 2013 What’s On brochure will be available to peruse on line here from mid November, when the brochures will also be available from the ticket offices.
High on our agenda for 2013 is to get you all gardening and looking closely at plants in the company of our great team of horticulturalists. This year we want to share their knowledge and expertise with you a bit more. So if you admired our annual flower meadows, join us for the day and learn how to create your own at home, or perhaps how to grow cut flowers? A new highlight will be a Learn to Garden weekend course, run by our Head of Horticulture, Sally Petitt - the perfect introduction to gardening. We’re also delighted to welcome some new tutors: garden designer and author, Dawn Isaac offers Family Garden Design Clinic while journalist Jackie Bennett’s one day course will focus on Creating Wildlife Gardens. We will also be including an Ask the Gardeners session in May’s Celebration of Plants event – so pop in with those mystery plants and burning horticultural questions and tap into the font of knowledge that we are lucky enough to have at our fingertips everyday.

As ever if you are not sure which course is right for you please give us a ring to talk it over with us. and if you’ve never attended a course here at the Garden, we hope that 2013 will be the year you try one. Do check back here for details from mid November 2012, or pick up a brochure from the ticket offices.
