Roses are arguably the most “garden worthy” plants you could choose to grow.  They offer amazing versatility in all manner of gardens, from the intimate to the large scale and from the formal to the informal.

This workshop will teach you about the many types of roses available and the many different ways they can be used, as well as plenty of specialist guidance on how to care for them.

With help from our expert guest tutor, you will be given the opportunity to design your own rose border or garden be it purely roses or mixed in with other plants.

Suitable for all levels; no previous gardening experience necessary.
