Find inspiration and get expert advice on how to design your dream garden.

During this four-day course you'll learn how to recognise the particular constraints of your own space, and how to develop ideas and an outline plan.

We'll explore how to put your plan into action with practical sessions on approaching construction and developing a planting design.

This course is aimed at amateur gardeners who are keen to develop their own gardens. It will be classroom based and provide useful design tools and approaches. Some knowledge of garden plants will be useful but not essential.

This course is run in collaboration with the London College of Garden Design, the leading training college for professional garden design.
