Designing a Flower Border with Jo Thompson 

If you have ever wondered how to go about designing the planting for a flower border in your own garden, join us here at Water Lane for this one day workshop. Our friend and Water Lane’s Garden Designer, Jo Thompson will be taking us on a journey through planting design, explaining methods and offering tips and tricks as well as sharing border designs she has worked on over the years. Jo has created some of Chelsea's most memorable and award-winning show gardens over the last decade. This one day workshop will use The Melon House border at Water Lane that Jo designed planted in 2023, as a resource and point of inspiration throughout the day

Topics covered will include starting from scratch, reworking an existing border, position, aspect as well as soil conditions. There will be exploration of structure, seasonality and plant selection, including shrubs, perennials, annuals and well as one of Jo's favourite topics - the use of colour. 

Tickets £150 for the day including refreshments and a light lunch.
