Sempervivum & Alpine Workshops 2019

iphone 214We have brought back an old favourite event, the Sempervivum Workshop with an added addition of an Alpine version. We will show you how to use sempervivums/alpines and other associated plants using terracotta pots and boxes provided by D'Arcy & Everest to make interesting displays similar to ones we do for the RHS shows. All materials are included in cost. All you need to do is make sure you have good footwear and appropriate clothing for the day, and enjoy yourself. This is very much a hands on event so be prepared to get mucky!
