New garden masterclass series

An exciting new series of garden masterclasses begins in April, organised by garden designer Annie Guilfoyle and plantsman Noël Kingsbury, in association with Gardens Illustrated


Garden Masterclasses is a series of 13 one-day workshops, planned by garden designer Annie Guilfoyle and plantsman Noël Kingsbury at nine different locations across the country. Each workshop is organised around a specific topic, and designed to offer students a place to learn, to share, and to experience knowledge, skills and ideas in gardening and garden design.

"We have put together this programme because we felt that there was a real lack of learning opportunities for amateur gardeners (and indeed for professionals). There are plenty of gardening societies and garden schools that offer opportunities to hear lectures, but relatively few that offer a more active approach to learning. Our aim is to offer a learning experience where there is a more interactive approach, with smaller groups, opportunities to ask questions and have a go".

Annie and Noël aim to offer readers the chance to learn about various aspects of gardening and garden design from expert tutors, including photographer Jason Ingram, writer and broadcaster James Alexander-Sinclair and designer Sarah Price.

You can chat to Annie and Noel about the Garden Masterclass series at the Gardens Illustrated Festival, 25-26 March. The pair will have a stand in our shopping marquee and will be available to answer any questions you might have about their upcoming workshops. To book tickets to the festival, visit
