Birtsmorton Court has a 10-acre garden surrounding a beautiful medieval moated manor. There will be an opportunity for a tour of the gardens – including white garden, potager, vegetable garden, greenhouse with streptocarpus, pelargonium and cacti collections.
Birtsmorton court has a variety of mature climbing roses on walls and structures around the gardens. Mike Gogerty the Head Gardener, will talk about the principles of pruning climbers , how to clean and sharpen secateurs and pruning tools, and we will then set to work in the garden. There will be an opportunity for a tour of the gardens before we leave.
