Join us at Dalemain’s Historic Gardens for informative and fun gardening days, once a month over the period of a year (classes can be booked on a one off basis).

The courses which run from 9.00am – 4.30pm on the first Monday of each month and will include lectures, practical demonstrations and a mini Gardeners Question Time. The classes are available to be booked separately and will cover seasonal tips, propagation, pruning and more. These days which will take place in the magnificent Medieval Hall, will be led by Jane McCosh, owner of Dalemain with Shelagh Todd, a Horticultural Lecturer and Plants Woman.

Included alongside a wealth of knowledge is a delicious homemade lunch in the Medieval Hall and a behind the scenes tour of the gardens. This is an exceptional chance to learn the continuity of an award winning garden once a month over a full year.

These days are for small intimate private classes so do book in advance to reserve a place. There is a discount for RHS Members and group bookings so get in touch to discuss this with us.
