Beth Chatto Gardens

Details

New for 2017, join our popular resident tutor Christine Lavelle as she takes you through the fundamental principles of design and concentrates on how to create a garden using a rich tapestry of plants. Emphasis will also be put on "the right plant for the right place" and the importance of excellent horticultural knowledge to make a design work. This course will really help you look at your own garden and give you many ideas to enhance it. The course is carried out over 3 terms and students will undertake several design projects during the course of a year.
