Colour, form, texture, the building blocks of planting design. Noel's scientific approach alongside Sarah's artistic one combine to provide insights into how we look at plants and put them together in ways harmonious or vibrantly contrasting. Innovative practical exercises mean real hands on involvement by particpants.
The workshop will run from 10am to 4.30pm including a two course lunch. Coffee will be available beforehand from 9.30am and tea and cake afterwards from 4.30pm, so there will be plenty of time to wander around the Walled Garden and buy plants, herbs, vegetables and flowers.
