This is the ideal course if you are a beginner or novice gardener who would like to learn the basics of how to design your own garden. Using a combination of theory and practical sessions, your lecturer Neil will help you test what type of soil you have, which way your garden is facing and what light levels there are. You will then be shown how to match the right plants for the right places in your garden. In a fun and friendly learning environment you will be taken step by step through the stages towards helping you design the garden perfect for you.
