An opportunity to improve and refresh your garden with support and help from a professional garden designer. You will learn, step by step, how to redesign your own plot. The course will begin with basic principles and go on to cover choosing the right plants. An information pack will be sent out ahead of the start date.
NB It is important that participants have a garden, or part of a garden, to work on during the sessions. If you don’t need to redesign you garden but you want to improve the look of your borders you may find the ‘Choosing plants for your borders’ course more suitable.
Deadline for enrolment: 3 weeks before the course takes place as an information pack will be sent out to students before the first session of the course.

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.
