Over the course of the day, Jimi will discuss the design of the main borders. This is a wonderful opportunity to examine how he creates borders in his unique style using a tapestry of plants to wonderful effect. Understanding light, colour, form and texture, repetition, balance and linking areas of the garden together. Jimi will talk in depth about the pallet of plants he uses to create harmony and flow and also the dramatic combinations that give Hunting Brook its exuberance at this time of year
The afternoon will be packed with information about growing techniques and the practicalities of maintaining borders from spring through to winter. Including propagation, plant selection, dead heading, feeding and extending the seasons
