Perennial gardening is an art form, and when done properly creates a long lasting, long blooming, easy care, beautiful garden. A well-planned and well-planted border is a planting scheme that can bring lots of benefits to your garden from creating a lush and full-looking border to attracting bees and other pollinators and wildlife. Join Antique Perennials for a masterclass in perennial planting.
Learn how to:
- understand and prepare your soil
- confidently make plant selections that best suit your conditions
- perfect planting density
- minimise seasonal maintenance
- create naturalistic plantings using colour, texture and form, which goes beyond the limited idea of formal perennial borders
Learn how to confidently create your own perennial border from the experts at Antique Perennials.
Lunch is provided.
