'Planting for drought'

Free course

                                                  We all experienced an extremely hot and dry summer in the UK.
Plants suffered a lot from the lack of water and the heat. Many losses were experienced in newly planted gardens and many others were significantly set back.

In this mini-workshop we will be discussing which plants are more tolerant to dry conditions?
Which plants require less maintenance when faced with dryness and heat?
How much water do newly planted plants really need?
 What irrigation do you need and much more!

This course is now fully booked!
