Included in your entrance ticket you can enjoy a series of
gardening talks where you can learn great advice from
the regions experts.

advice on "potting" then grab a coffee and take a seat

Don't forget there will be a "Q and A" session after each talk.  





Darren Lerigo and team work hard to create innovative and modern gardens for the 21st Century home. They endlessly design spaces which can be enjoyed by all of the family – young or old.

What do I do with this space?

A question clients often ask us, a question we often ask ourselves ... but where do you begin? The talk takes in the work of people from all over the world – starting in Japan, then going via Scandinavia, Spain, Uruguay, Sheffield and the kitchen of a Parisian chef - to discover what your dream garden could look like.  'What do I do with this space?' is an inspiring global journey that helps you decide how to begin making the garden of your dreams!
