If you choose plants just for the way they look, then you’re missing out.

Join Karen for this one day scented garden workshop and you’ll depart with seeds sown, hand-made place settings and the confidence to create a perfumed paradise in your garden.

From the spicy citrus scent of witchhazel on a bright winter’s day to the powder-puff perfume of old-fashioned roses; via the black pepper aroma of moss roses rubbed between the fingertips and the woody undertones of freshly cut Choisya; past the grey-leaved shrub with flowers smelling of pineapple, to the fragrant vase of sweet box in the hallway ………with careful plant selection even the smallest garden can provide a succession of scents throughout the year. We will also discover plants such as evening primrose that produce the best fragrance in the evening to attract night-flying insects into your outdoor space. This course is perfect for any keen gardener who wants to add a new dimension to their garden.

Course includes coffee and cake on arrival, a delicious relaxing lunch by Papaya Catering in the beautiful surrounding of Linnels Farm.
