Welcome to the 2016 programme of talks, workshops and open days at Llanover Garden School.
In October, the Garden School starts its eleventh and most varied season yet with a design workshop led by the dynamic Laura de Beden. I am delighted to host several speakers for the first time including Jane and Toni from Tynings Climbers who dazzle visitors to RHS shows with their stunning plant displays, Jake Hobson,who creates living sculptures from evergreen shrubs and trees and Helen Yemm who has faced the dilemmas of downsizing. Finally, Thomas Broom-Hughes and Amanda Brame who manage the wonderful Petersham Nurseries, will be bringing a touch of their creative magic to Llanover in March.
Peter Hall, the Head Gardener at Llanover continues to use his wealth of experience and knowledge in the herbaceous borders, streamside plantings, arboretum and meadows. Thousands of perennials, shrubs, trees, roses and bulbs have been planted in the last 12 months. The garden has never looked better in my lifetime – come see for yourselves! Private visits for groups are most welcome by prior appointment.
After an enjoyable visit to Llanover please consider buying a gift voucher for a friend, “like” Llanover Garden School on Facebook or post an 'Instagram'.
With best wishes
