Join Michael Marriott, a world authority on roses, for an informative talk and practical pruning masterclass.
Drawing on his vast 30-year experience in rose growing, Michael – the former Head Rosarian at David Austin Roses, will share the theory of pruning and growing techniques.
Discover the art of growing all types of roses, from old and modern shrub roses, to climbers and ramblers, helping to develop your knowledge and ensure your own roses perform to their fullest potential and provide stunning summer displays.
Following the talk, immerse yourself in the tranquil beauty of Borde Hill’s celebrated Rose Garden in winter as we take the workshop outdoors for hands-on demonstrations where you can put the theory into practice.
Don’t miss this invaluable opportunity to unlock the full potential of your own roses at home. Reserve your place and join us to gain the skills and confidence to elevate your rose growing expertise.
No prior knowledge is required, as we will guide you step by step through the process.
