Gardening Courses for Hobby Gardeners 2024

  • 30 July - 27 August 202410:00 - 15:00

Learn about soil and plants in the magical grounds of Hever Castle; a picturesque and inspiring classroom, brimming with mature plant specimens unique to these historically important gardens.

Starting from the ground up, four different topics will be covered;  beginning with looking at soil, discovering methods of managing  it and selecting composts.  Other topics covered will be propagation, pests and diseases and houseplants.  A flexible approach to learning will take full advantage of the grounds, with plenty of opportunities to ask questions and problem solve issues in your own garden.

Each week will include a practical session and an educated walk round the gardens, so bring your wellies and outdoor clothes!

For those gardeners that would like to develop their skills but do not wish to take exams or undertake the formal RHS Level 2 qualifications, then these hobby gardening courses could be the perfect option.
