Spread, Seed and Die
Understanding long-term plant performance in the garden
Dr Noel Kingsbury will be delivering a workshop on the long-term performance of plants. How long will plants survive? Will they spread? How will my new border look in five years? The workshop encourages participants to observe their garden and plants, focusing on their
growth throughout the year, as well as how the plants compete with each other, and will help participants learn to assess prospects for plant longevity and suitability for a variety of garden locations. The aim is to get people thinking about how plants are linked to their natural habitats and ecology and how this connects to the way we use them in our gardens. Participants get out and down on their hands and knees to use “the rabbit’s eye view” to closely observe the growing habits and life cycles of garden plants.
Numbers are limited to 20.
