Saturday 27 June – THE ART AND APPLICATION OF CLOUD PRUNING – Sarah Carlton 

The traditional Japanese art of Niwaki (often called cloud pruning), is a creative form of pruning that can be related to the European art of topiary. In this masterclass, you will learn how to apply these creative techniques to provide structure and form in your garden, to re-imagine and renovate existing plantings, and how to care for your creations year on year. A good level of hand dexterity will be required.

Saturday 25 July – MICROGREENS AND SPROUTING – Elliott Forsyth  

Join us as we spotlight these amazing versatile superfoods. We will focus on the best ones to grow in the home context and uncover the techniques we use to grow them on the Urban Farm. During the afternoon there will be a practical demonstration and a chance to start growing your own microgreens and sprouts. 

Saturday 22 August – CREATING A MINIATURE CREVICE GARDEN – Sarah Carlton  

In this masterclass you will gain an in-depth insight into the wonders of alpine plants and high mountain habitats. You will learn how to design a mini rock-scape, replicating natural rock formations to create the perfect environment for growing alpine plants in your own garden. In the practical session, you will build your own miniature crevice garden in a trough, using local rock and alpine plants from around the world, and take your masterpiece home with you. A good level of hand dexterity will be required.
