Welcome to Llanover Garden School’s
programme of events for 2013-2014.
Whether you are a hands-on
gardener eager to learn and put into practice new ideas,
or someone who simply enjoys hearing erudite gardeners in
a glorious setting, Llanover has a day for you. I am delighted
to welcome all my speakers. In particular Mary Keen,
Angus White and Tim Miles who are bringing their expertise
and enthusiasm to Llanover for the first time. Following
on from the excellent study day with Tim Walker last March,
I am holding another one, which Noel Kingsbury will lead.
Christmas workshops under the guidance of Emma and Kirsten
from Love-Lily continue to be deservedly popular. They use
a generous range of flowers and foliage of a quality and
variety which is not matched elsewhere. Do look on the website
to see some of the stunning Christmas wreaths for the table
or door as created in previous years.
Garden School day starts at 10 am with coffee by a blazing
fire, followed by a talk and questions in the lecture theatre.
We then move to the drawing room for a delicious two course
lunch – cooked
by Pav Taruschio – before another talk and a home-made
afternoon tea. The garden is yours to explore, and the
lecture room is one of the best you will see in a private
house with comfortable, tiered seating and a huge screen,
making it easy for everyone to see and hear the speaker.
If you wish to use it for a Garden Society AGM together
with a tour of the garden, please contact me. In addition
I continue to lead group tours around the garden by arrangement
throughout the year.
days costs £70,
the study day is £60 and the Christmas workshop is £85.
If four tickets to the same lecture are booked together
there is a specially price of £250, which represents
a saving of 11% per ticket. Vouchers for days at the Garden
School are available to give as Christmas, birthday or
As ever I want
to keep the cost reasonable, mainly through the use of email
rather than postage, so please do give me your email address.
If you have enjoyed yourself here, then get together a
tableful of friends for a special day out, “like” Llanover
Garden School on Facebook
and send an email link to anyone you think might be interested.
With best wishes,
