Don’t despair – low maintenance gardens can be beautiful too!

By the end of the day you will feel that you garden is a pleasure, not a chore.

Keeping your garden healthy with minimal effort
Favourite plants for a well-behaved garden
Combining plants so they need less care

Free entry to the garden
Illustrated handouts
Step-by-step guidance
Paper and drawing equipment

You will achieve:
An undertanding of what plants need in order to perform well with minimal care
A list plants for low maintenance
A knowledge of how to create a low maintenance planting scheme
