I loved every minute and came away with a real sense of achievement”


 Design Your Own Garden

I’ve designed a lot of gardens and during this course I’ll help you to design your own.

I’ll guide you as you assess your plot, write a brief, consider practical and aesthetic elements, draw a plan, select the right plants for the right place and prepare your garden for planting.

We’ll also look at how to brief builders and landscapers. I’ll even help you source the plants! 

This course is modular. A maximum of 6 students per session.

How to Workshops

I've gardened for many years and look forward to sharing my knowledge and experience with you. How To Workshops are designed to help you increase your skills and knowledge in a friendly and supportive atmosphere.

There's something for everyone from half day "Getting Started" and "Garden Maintenance" for beginner gardeners to "Success with Seeds" and "Propagation" sessions. Whole day workshops provide enough time to delve deeper into "Coastal/Gravel Gardening" and "Creating A Border"

The Climate Resilient Gardening sessions are for anyone interested in engaging with sustainable gardening practices and with an eye on future proofing their garden.

A maximum of 6 students per session ensures that everyone receives personalised tuition.
