Talks, demonstrations and inter active workshops, are held at our field stock area in the Walled Garden at Copped Hall, at Garden Clubs, Shows & Associations, as well as RHS Wisley and English Heritage properties.
James gives expert advice and guidance on how to cut topiary, ‘step by step’, one to one tuition in a supervised workshop environment, where participants are ‘let loose’ on un-cut Buxus plants encouraging design inspiration.
A typical sample of the structure of the tuition:
- Understanding the different varieties of Buxus and their habits/attributes
- Training of plant shapes
- Care and maintenance
- Tools and maintenance
- Design and shaping
We also have a yearly course at West Dean
