Sunday 23rd July
(9.30am to 11.30am)
If you want to make the most of your fruit trees or maybe you’re thinking of planting some new ones then this is a good time of year to do this. This very popular pruning & care workshop will give you all the basics to assist in your success. As this event is generally over-subscribed we are running this follow up one from the June workshop to ensure everyone who is interested gets the opportunity to attend.
David Bayly, our in house tree care expert, will be once again running this very useful and timely workshop in his usual relaxed and interactive style.
Topics to be discussed will include:
- Tools required
- Pros & cons of various trees
- Site selection and preparation
- Planting methodologies/techniques
- General tree care
- Safety considerations
As mentioned above this event is traditionally extremely popular so BOOKING is ESSENTIAL as spaces are limited (see below for booking details).
Afterwards you will also be able to stroll around the beautiful Sculpture Gardens which has over 40 marvelous pieces created for our 2023 exhibition by local and international artists on display; as well as the extended nature trail (approximately 3.5km in total).*
We also have our cute little coffee shop on site plus of course the Plant Centre for you to browse through. Our knowledgeable and friendly staff will also be on hand to help with any other garden related questions.
*The gardens and nature trail are unfortunately not suitable for wheelchairs or walking frames.
