This informative masterclass will take you through the use of colour, height and texture in planning and designing a beautiful herbaceous border.
The herbaceous border enables gardeners to work with a wide variety of plants, and to experiment.
In this class you will learn about planting plans and the seasonal tasks involved in keeping a border looking at its best throughout the year.
You will gain insights into the cutting back, propagation and division of herbaceous perennials, planting new perennials and bulbs, and soil improvement and conditioning techniques.
The masterclass is suitable for complete beginners as well as gardeners with experience.

This masterclass will be led by Botanical Horticulturalists from Oxford Botanic Garden.
