Held in our workshop next to the Flower Field, our courses are relaxed and friendly and cater for everyone from complete novices to experienced gardeners and florists. We keep numbers low so that everybody has time and opportunity to ask questions and get hands-on help from Jan, who is always happy to pass on tips and advice gleaned in her 10 years of growing flowers professionally.
"Thank you so much, Jan, for a superb morning with you. A very inspirational workshop and felt you were so generous with your time and advice. Thoroughly enjoyed it."

Sunday 18th March 2pm - 3.30pm
One of the keys to making up a beautiful homegrown bouquet is having a good range of feature flowers, filler and foliage to cut.
