Growing Flowers for Cutting
The Bishop’s Palace, Wells, Somerset
Saturday March 11th 10:00am – 3:00pm
To pay online please go to Workshops on Events tab
The Bishop’s Palace garden was in existence before the Palace was built in 1209, and has been changed and updated through the centuries to reflect the wishes of the Bishop’s. The 14 acres include an arboretum planted in 1977 for the Queen’s Jubilee, yew hedges, pools and herbaceous borders.
The workshop will take place in the Community Garden. Formerly a derelict area of the gardens, the Community Garden was transformed as part of a £4 million Development Project at the Palace. The garden was built with a huge amount of volunteer support and offers people of all backgrounds the opportunity to develop new skills and get involved in gardening. Amanda Clay will talk about growing flowers for cutting, what to plant, and how to care for them. The Community Garden provides cut flowers for the Palace and shop. The day will include a brief tour of the garden.
The workshop will cost £45. Please bring a camera, notebook and pen. Food is available in the café or you are welcome to bring a packed lunch.
