A light hearted and humorous workshop with Peter and Jacky about how simple it is to use hardy plants to create autumn/winter colour .

A light hearted and humorous workshop with Peter and Jacky about how simple it is to use evergreens, shrubs, ferns, grasses and other hardy plants with seasonal colours and bulbs to create autumn/winter colour in a container or basket.

The workshop begins with a demonstration and you then have the chance to create your own with our help.

Buy your container, pot or basket from the selection we have at the nursery or bring your own from home. Often overlooked is the colour available through the winter. Most of the plants used in these baskets can be planted out into the garden when we are ready to refill our baskets in April/May.

Arrive 10.15am workshop starts at 10.30am ending at 12.00 noon. Complimentary refreshments provided.

There is a £10.00 non-refundable, non-transferable booking fee and a charge at the end of the workshop which covers the materials you have used.
