Lamport Masterclasses

I run an annual series of gardening courses and workshops in the beautiful setting of Lamport Hall (mid-way between Northampton and Market Harborough). Details of dates for 2020 are below.

 

All are suitable both for beginners and more experienced gardeners. Numbers are limited and the emphasis is on informality, allowing plenty of scope for discussion and questions!

All inclusive of light refreshments. Tour of the gardens included!

 

For further details and to book a place, please send me a message using the heading Lamport Masterclasses.
