Course fee: £80 (£70 Concessions, Friends of Kew). Maximum capacity: 20 places.
From the beginning of June to the end of September, the garden can be a riot of colour - but when starting to plan a summer border, knowing what to plant where can be daunting.
This course is run by Richard Wilford - the designer of the Great Broad Walk Borders at Kew - and will introduce basic concepts of planting design to help you create your own beautiful summer border.
Focussing on planting styles, structure, form and of course the huge range of colourful, summer-flowering herbaceous perennials, there will be plenty to inspire you.
The course will include a walking tour around parts of Kew, including the Great Broad Walk Borders.
Richard Wilford is Head of Garden Design at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. He writes regularly for Kew Magazine and Curtis's Botanical Magazine. He is the author of Growing Garden Bulbs, Tulips: Species and Hybrids for the Gardener and Alpines from Mountain to Garden.
