More popular garden courses at Holland House

The nights are getting longer, the temperature is dropping; autumn is almost upon us. There is much to look forward to at this time of year and not least of all in the garden with the promise of rich autumn colours. However the coming months are also very busy ones for gardeners. There is a lot to do at this time of year with cutting back old summer growth, ensuring tender stock is protected from winter cold and a whole range of tasks to ensure the garden is fully prepared for the worst of the winter weather.
The dilema of what to do when, which so many gardeners struggle with, is the subject of a new series of courses to be run by Patrick Swan at Holland House. Starting on Tuesday 6th November, a half day course titled "Putting your garden to bed" will look at all that needs to be done, both outside in the garden and in the greenhouse, to get everything ready for the winter. Next year, on Wednesday 6th March, a similar half day course will look at what needs to be done to wake the garden up for spring; getting it fit and prepared for the growing season including those all important pruning jobs.
These are only a few of the garden focused events that Patrick will be running at Holland House over the next year, with a very exciting event being planned for next summer, watch this space!
His workshops and courses are proving to be very popular and with limited places early booking is recommended. Contact Holland House on the link below.
