Gardening Workshops in Berkshire
Award winning designer Faith and her team will demystify the practice of gardening, taking away the jargon and explaining both the theory and the practice to make you a more confident gardener. Taking place in a beautiful garden setting, you will be given the chance to get hands on and practice gardening techniques and you always get to take home something to get you started in your own garden.
You can visit Faith’s own garden in Swallowfield on NGS Open Days. Additionally, Faith is delighted to provide garden tours of her gardens to interested groups of more than 10 people by arrangement. Refreshments can be provided for these garden tours and onsite parking is available.
A proportion of the entrance fee for tours will be donated to charity.

Jo Hayns, Herbs and plants for health and wellbeing Workshop
“I don’t have much of a garden, so I booked onto the Planter Workshop. Faith made us very welcome and she delivered a really interested, clear presentation before we got to work. Everything we needed was laid out for us and the end result was gorgeous. Faith really knows her stuff and is a charming and well organised host.”
Nicki Ochtman, Planter Workshop
“I know nothing about plants so attended the Design Your Own Flower Border Workshop. Faith explained things simply and succinctly and suggested plants to suit our individual tastes. She is very passionate about what she does and has an incredible knowledge of plants.”
Rosemary, Design Your Own Flower Border Workshop
“Faith is so talented and knowledgeable. Her workshop was fun and I learnt so much about setting up a veg garden, growing from seed and different soil types. Her venue is high quality and delightful. Her garden is magnificent and a testament to her abilities as a gardener and a designer. “

Book an appointment with us.
The first step is for Faith to have a chat with you over the phone to understand what it is that you wish to achieve in your garden. At this stage you will discuss how you want to use your garden, what horticulture expertise you do or don’t have, how much time you want to spend maintaining your garden going forward, what style of garden you like and what budget you have in mind.
