Event description
Learn how to create successful planting designs for your garden starting from scratch. Our full-day, practical workshop will equip you with the knowledge, skills and equipment to create the planting effects you want.

On this course, you will learn:

The principles of site and soil analysis (you will analyse a soil sample from your own garden)
The principles of good planting design and the role of form, texture and colour
How to measure up and draw your plan to scale
How to place plants within a scheme
How to maintain and refresh your planting over time

This entry-level course is suitable for the non-professional gardener at all levels of experience in gardening with little or no experience of planting design.

There will be a mix of activities on the day: lecture, Q&A, soil testing, drawing, placing plants.  At the end you will take home all the kit you need to get started with planting design at home.
We will break for lunch halfway through the day but please note, lunch is not included in your ticket fee. Please feel free to bring a picnic or you will be able to purchase from a range of delicious lunch dishes in the Crocus at Dorney Court Cafe.
The workshop is taught by Neill Ludmon who is a specialist in the teaching of planting design.  He now lectures at the Woottens of Wenhaston nursery in Suffolk and has his own planting design practice.
