Head Gardener Fergus Garrett will lead this Study Day held at Great Dixter House and Gardens. Refreshments and lunch are included, served in the Great Hall and we are offering a 10% discount on plant sales for attendees in the nursery on the day.

This study day takes you through the preparation and planning involved in getting a complex garden like Great Dixter ready through the winter for spring and early summer display. It will include the garden timetable, composting, soil preparation, weeding, thinning out of self-sowers, working off boards, splitting, dividing and planting self-sowers, timing of seed sowing, pricking out, choosing annuals for adding to the display. All in all it’s an intensive day talking practical stuff.

Price: £180 per person
