An enjoyable and informal course on choosing the right plants for your garden. Professional garden designer Christine Pritchard will discuss suitable trees, shrubs and perennials and how to put them together for best effect. Of interest to anyone keen to improve their beds and borders. No previous experience necessary.
Please note that a visit to a local garden may be arranged, to study the plant design, if students are interested. This possibility will be discussed at the first session. There would be an extra charge for the visit, and students would be expected to make their own way to and from the garden.

Tutor – Christine Pritchard
Subjects: Gardening and Garden Design
I worked as an under-gardener at Showerings in Shepton Mallet before going to horticultural college.
In 1987 I came back to Somerset to start my own landscape design business.
I received my MA in environmental policy and management from UWE, where I focused my dissertation on landscaping barn conversions.
Following success at Chelsea Flower Show, I worked on the “Roots and Shoots” gardening series for HTV.
As well as Stoke Lodge I also lecture at the University of Bristol Botanic Garden in horticulture and garden design.
