Evening Garden Talks - Shrubs for Structure Thursday 28th June

Shrubs for Structure & Seasonal Interest - with Carolyn Foster

Shrubs can act as the ‘bones’ of a garden border, but as they are generally very long lasting they need to be chosen well  to suit the available space and conditions of aspect and soil.  It is also beneficial to have a spread of seasonal interest so they really earn their place in the garden.

Good combinations of shrubs from the Nursery  will be put together to illustrate this, and their notable features and seasonal interest will be discussed, as well as the pruning  methods they require to keep them looking their best.

The evening will include a drink and nibbles on arrival, choice of a main meal and a range of desserts.  Additional drinks (alcoholic and soft) will be available to purchase on the night.

The Cafe will open at 6.45 pm with the talk commencing at 7.00 pm.
