From the beginning of June to the end of September, the summer 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 the designer of the magnificent Great Broad Walk Borders in Kew Gardens, Richard Wilford. It will introduce basic concepts of planting design to help you create your own beautiful summer border.

Focusing 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.
