a small garden

ONLINE COURSE Small garden design in three half days: 2, 9, 16 Sept

Thu 2 September - Thu 16 September


Join RHS medal-winning garden designer Paul Herrington, for advice on how to deal effectively with small gardens which have their own practical challenges such as a lack of privacy, heavy shade, poor soil and visually dominant fences or walls. Over three separate half-day sessions Paul will guide you so that you come away with clear ideas of how your garden can look. Paul has designed and created many private, public and health-care gardens over the past 30 years. He has also organised therapeutic horticulture projects for people with physical and psychological health issues.
