Welcome to the 2015/16 programme of talks, workshops and demonstrations at Llanover Garden School.
This autumn I am delighted to welcome Glyn Jones from Hidcote and Mark Diacono from Otter Farm to Llanover Garden School for the first time. Next March Helen Dillon is flying from Dublin to speak about her renown garden and David Howard, formerly Head Gardener at Highgrove will make his first visit here.
The Christmas workshops under the guidance of Emma and Jo from Love-Lily continue to be very popular. A generous and unusual range of stunningly beautiful flowers and foliage of a quality and variety which is not matched elsewhere is provided. This year I am also running a Garden Photography Workshop with Philip Smith who founded the 'International Garden Photographer of the Year' competition.
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 Society meeting together with a tour of the garden, please contact me.
Peter Hall, the Head Gardener at Llanover continues to use his wealth of experience and knowledge to improve the herbaceous borders, streamside plantings, arboretum and meadows. Thousands of perennials, shrubs, trees, roses and bulbs have been planted in the last 12 months. The garden has never looked better in my lifetime – come see for yourselves!
After an enjoyable visit to Llanover please consider buying a Gift voucher for a friend or “like” Llanover Garden School on Facebook, or “tweet” the day.
With best wishes
