Join RHS medal-winning garden designer Paul Herrington for advice on how to deal effectively with small gardens, which have their own practical challenges such as a lack of privacy, heavy shade, poor soil, and visually dominant fences or walls. Over three separate half-day sessions Paul will guide you so that you come away with clear ideas of how your garden can look. Numbers on this course are limited to ensure plenty of opportunities for support and discussion with the tutor and fellow participants. The price is for all three sessions which cannot be booked individually.
Session 1 (Wednesday 17th January 2024): Inspirational small gardens. The principles of good garden design and how to apply them.
Session 2 (Wednesday 24th January 2024): The wish list – fitting it all in, and what to leave out! Options for paths, paving and boundaries. Garden structures.
Session 3 (Wednesday 31st January 2024): Attracting wildlife. Planting for all seasons. The right plant in the right place.
