Garden talks at Hidcote

From January to April, we will be hosting a series of talks about Hidcote and gardening. From understanding plant names to the creator of Hidcote himself, you are sure to leave Hidcote with an abundance of inspiration for your own garden.


Garden design fundamentals, Friday 9 March 10.30-11.30am

This talk will give you the opportunity to go home full of ideas to start thinking about different design elements in your own garden. Garden Design Fundamentals will take a look at some of the fundamental principles of garden design, examples in real gardens (including examples at Hidcote) and how to apply them in your garden at home.

Understanding plant names, Friday 13 April 10.30-11.30am

If you've always been confounded by plant names then come along to this informative talk to learn the language of botanical Latin. You'll discover why a water lily isn't a lily but a tulip is, and that understanding the names of plants can teach you how to be a better gardener.

These talks will take place in our chapel with teas and coffees on arrival (from 10am) and will start promptly at 10.30am. All tickets are £30 each. Please note the gardens will only be open for the talks in March and April.

To book your place on any of these talks please ring 01386 438333.
