Sarsden Glebe is 3 acre garden just into the Cotswolds. It is surrounded by parkland laid out by Humphrey Repton and his son, George. The garden comprises of formal terraces around the house, a wild garden with ancient oak trees and a large kitchen garden. Over the last five years Rupert and Amanda have worked hard to keep the box hedges healthy and free from blight and box moth. During this practical skills day, you will learn how we treat the hedges throughout the year for best health; how and when it is best to clip; and, if a plant is infected, how we restore it.

Amanda and Rupert have restored their wonderful garden over the last few decades. They love to share their experience gained with other keen gardeners.

9.30am for coffee and talk on box health, treatments and correct tools.   This will be followed by clipping demonstrations and practise.

12-12.30 Lunch.  After lunch, there will be time to walk around the garden.

3.30-4pm Tidying up and day ends.
