This is an in person one-day event which will be run at the following times:

By the end of this session you will:
• Be able to explain the importance of plants, place and space.
• Identify which plants, specifically perennials, can provide interest all year round
• Explain why plant selection is critical to ensuring succession
• Identify plant material which can help to overcome seasonal slumps
• Consider root systems, growth and plant sociability in a range of perennials
• Improve your own planting plans
