Morton Hall, near Inkberrow in Worcestershire is a private garden set on the edge of an embankment that gives spectacular views across the Vale of Evesham. The eight acres of gardens and grounds have been completely re-designed in the last 10 years by Charles Chesshire into a series of linked garden rooms that lead around the Georgian house. The approach to the house is typically grand, with a sweeping drive flanked by lawns.

The task for this Skills Day is to clear the area under a listed horse chestnut from weeds, ivy and violets. We will then remove diseased and deceased cyclamen. Next, we will apply a mulch of organic matter and then plant cyclamen hederifolium and coum, epimediums, ferns and winter aconite bulbs.

Water, tea and coffee will be supplied. Each participant is expected to bring their own packed lunch and a bottle to be filled on site.  Please bring Waterproof clothing, Garden gloves, Secateurs & trowels. Kneelers if required.

The cost for the day is £25, the event is open to members only.
