Taster - Patio and Balcony Planting Design at Hillcroft

Would you like to start growing plants in pots to add colour to your outdoor spaces or a window box if you have no outdoor space of your own? This taster session will look at various ideas and practical solutions to planting in containers to get you started on brightening up your home. We will look at how to adapt your plant choices for sunny and shady spots as well as how you might think about the changing seasons.

You will leave with a sample pot to take away and grow on at home.
