About The Event

In staking with natural materials Neil will cover building attractive cages with hazel and birch – making simple wigwams and how to support heavier plants like dahlias and peony. He will share tips on the best time to stake plus materials and suppliers and tricks so your plants will need less support. (Please come with gardening gloves and secateurs if you have them)

The workshop cost of £30 helps supports the work of our therapeutic theropeautic horticulture programs
