ONLINE COURSE Right plant, right place

Thu 15 July 2021


Right plant, right place… we’ve all heard that before right? But what does it mean and how can we achieve it in our own gardens? Join Paul Herrington for an informal, relaxed morning session. You’ll go away with a greater understanding and appreciation of micro-climates, soil types, plant choices and planting styles. And have a clear framework how to apply all of this to your garden borders whatever their size, and wherever they may be. NB this is a core component of my longer garden design courses. So if you’ve learned with me before, however great it would be to see you again, this shorter course might only be a refresher!

Paul Herrington is an RHS Chelsea Flower Show medal-winning garden designer with over two decades of experience who has worked in a range of private, public, commercial and therapeutic gardens. Paul also runs Grow Places, a social enterprise that works in hospital and community gardens alongside people with mental and physical health problems.

Cost: £25
