Adam’s Garden Masterclasses

In each masterclass Adam will look ahead at seasonal tasks to do in all areas of the garden. He will answer the most frequently asked questions, and demonstrate techniques and solutions that will help you get the best from your garden.

Adam will also share tips on how to design a garden and plant the perfect border, including his favourite plants, which are looking their best that month.

The masterclass will be a combination of a morning in the Garden School and a practical, hands-on afternoon outside.

By the end of the day, Adam hopes that you will be eager to get outside into your own garden.

Getting the Best from your borders

Does your border only look great for part of the year? Perhaps you have a beautiful flush of spring bulbs but nothing to follow, or borders bursting with colour at the start of summer but looking dull by autumn?

Join Adam for a hands-on day in the garden and find out how to make your borders work harder. From how to prep and improve growing conditions, to building up layers of planting, Adam will breakdown the stages of planting design and show you how to create exciting year-round interest.
