We've teamed up with Learning with Experts to help you learn new gardening skills.
The Learning with Experts gardening, horticulture and garden design courses are taught by expert tutors including Piet Oudolf, Chris Beardshaw, Dr Noel Kingsbury and most recently Jimi Blake.
In Jimi's new series, hosted from his Hunting Brook Gardens in Ireland, you can learn the intricacies of his planting style to use in your own garden. The courses are split into ‘Spring and Summer’ and ‘Summer and Autumn’ to bridge the gap between the seasons and help students to extend the season in their gardens using colour and design techniques. Lessons will include creating an exotic garden for a cold climate, Jimi’s recommended plants and how to plant a sand garden.
Here's Jimi explaining what you can expect from the Spring and Summer course.
And here's a bit about the Summer and Autumn programme.
