Spring Planning for a Productive Garden Course


During this informative, engaging and practical gardening course, Garden owner, Ursula Cholmeley, Head Gardener, Ollie Ryan-Moore and other members of the gardening team will guide you through planning and planting your beds for the season ahead. Each course will be a combination of theory and practical and you will be instrumental in assisting the team at Easton Walled Gardens with their own garden planning and practical gardening tasks.
