Don’t miss the new holiday edition of our hands-on planting experience, combined with a delicious Afternoon Tea - Tues 16th and Sat 20th July

You’ll start your 90-minute experience with the chance to relax and enjoy our traditional or luxury* Afternoon Tea - 3 tiers of sweet and savoury treats, plus unlimited tea and coffee refills

One of our plant experts will host a Q&A and demo, taking inspiration from holiday-inspired, tropical plants that will bring colour to your garden, celebrating summer living

You’ll then create your very own planter (worth £30) to take home. Learn all about our filler, thriller and spiller approach, using a mix of plants selected by our Senior Buyer, Claire, who features as a judge at RHS Chelsea. Plants will include Osteospermum, Canna Mango and Cordyline, plus a seasonal pot to suit your sunny, summer planting
