Garden Meadows – How to make them and keep them looking good

Book tickets

A look at composing, managing, and caring for meadows, long grass areas and flowering lawns within garden settings. Gardened meadows are distinctly different from grassland meadows managed for hay, although they can be just as diverse. Some gardens with richer soils and tree cover can still recreate a “meadow” planting with careful choices of plants and good management systems.

During a day spent in Jo’s meadow garden we will cover different ground preparation techniques; meadow plants; ecological value and habitat; balancing aesthetics and ecological benefits; bulbs and plants for flowering lawns; creating seasonality; managing an evolving habitat and plant community.


We will eat a vegetarian lunch. If you have any specific dietary requirements please let us know when you book your course.
