**** This course has now SOLD OUT ****
Please let us know if you would like to be added to our waiting list.
9th & 10th May: Day 1 at Allt Allt-y-bela 9.45 to 5pm and Day 2 to be confirmed - with transport from Allt-y-bela leaving at 8.30am and returning by 6.30pm
Day One: at Allt-y-bela. The tulips bring great cheer when they flower at Allt-y-bela, They seem somehow to signal the end of all the cold and wet of the winter, and we can look forward to the beginning of abundance and greater flamboyance in spring. Join us at Allt-y-bela to see how the plants are beginning to quicken their pace, glimpses of bare soil are diminishing, and the garden takes shape. Arne builds up borders like a tapestry of plants, layering the shrubs and perennials and threading through them with annuals and bulbs. Now is the time to plan how any gaps can be filled, with annual seedlings and summer flowering bulbs grown on in pots for placing in the borders when the frosts are over. We'll look at mood boards, for Allt-y-bela and other projects and see how plant cards are used for putting together planting combinations.
Day Two: A visit to Rockcliffe Garden and one other garden to be confirmed. A picnic lunch will be provided.
Course cost: £475 for two days including all refreshments during the course days. Travel to and from Allt-y-bela is included though accommodation costs are not included for the visit days unless indicated.
