Great Planting….The Easy Way. It is possible to reduce your gardening time and still have an interesting garden. A fun & informative workshop at a fabulous Sussex Garden Venue. Grow your garden confidence.

This is our most common request,
“How can I have a lovely garden…….easily?”
And it is possible. Juliet will explain how to prepare your garden in order to reduce the workload in the future, how to select plants that ‘behave’ and combine them for interest all year round in your garden.

If you are struggling to keep your garden in order, or you are planning a new scheme with limited time, Juliet has the tips and tools to help.
By choosing ‘well-behaved’ plants that are right for your garden, you can have a colourful and interesting scheme with the minimum of maintenance.
In this illustrated workshop, Juliet will explain how to prepare your garden and plant correctly to achieve that illusive low maintenance garden.

Subjects covered:
What plants need to be healthy and happy in your garden
Which plants will ‘behave’ and demand the least attention
How to combine plants for low maintenance

Who is the course for?
Beginners and garden enthusiasts are welcome.
This course for anyone who is struggling to maintain their garden, but still wants to have lovely planting.

By the end of the day you will have:
A list of great, un-fussy plants to use
Knowledge of how to combine the plants well
An understanding of how support the plants to grow well, with minimal input from you

Sussex Prairie Gardens Venue
The course is held at one of the most beautiful gardens in Sussex – where you will have free entry and the opportunity to enjoy the garden as well as purchase refreshments in the tea shop.

The Group
We will be an informal group. Juliet teaches in an accessible, workshop style with illustrated ‘info-bites’ and relevant exercises for you to think about your own garden.
As well as being an award-winning garden designer, Juliet has been teaching gardening to professionals and enthusiasts for over 15 years.
