The session has hands-on participation and support from knowledgeable Hillier plant experts.

 Between October 11 and 13, Hillier is hosting its autumn bulb planting workshops where participants will create two beautiful bulb containers to take home. Learning how to select the right pots and create complementary bulb planting schemes achieving, colour with interesting plant combinations, this promises to be an enjoyable session

These workshops are perfect whether you're a beginner or a well-seasoned gardener, as our plant experts are there to guide you with their helpful tips and information."
