Border design study day


We have postponed this course until later in the year and will confirm a new date as soon as possible.

Thank you for your understanding and if you have any questions, please contact Camilla on  or call her on 07498 984371.


Thursday 4 June  |  9:45am - 5:00pm

Join Arne Maynard's Head of Horticulture Dean Peckett, and Creative Director Kristy Ramage for a garden study day in support of Perennial, the charity for people in horticulture in the UK.

Dean and Kristy will lead a guided tour of the gardens at Allt y bela and talk you through some of Arne's most iconic planting schemes and border combinations.

This is a chance to ask questions about how Arne has laid out the garden at Allt y bela, considering the level changes, the underlying garden structure and the evolving planting choices for the different garden areas.

Before lunch, you will have a chance to explore the house with a drink and canapés, to gain an understanding of the important links between the inside and outside spaces and how to draw out and bring together the landscape, location and architectural style of a place.

In the afternoon, you will work on your own border design, creating a mood board and planting plan for your chosen area.

Our day will finish with afternoon tea.
