24th Jul: SCENTS OF SUMMER ROSES WORKSHOP
Everyone knows that roses smell beautiful, but did you know that no other garden plant has such a wide range of completely different scents?
This workshop will introduce you to many different varieties of roses and their distinct fragrances, with plenty of tips on how to choose and care for them.
You will also enjoy a mini floristry session with the Garden room team at Daylesford in which you can make your own summer bouquet using roses and other seasonal blooms.
