Gardening School

Gardening Courses, Gardening Classes and Gardening Workshops

For the price of a single visit from a garden services contractor you can invest in skills that will last a lifetime…………..

I have seen so many times gardeners adding yet more plants to an already packed garden!

What the garden is crying out for is pruning, feeding and weeding and if more plants are required we can provide guidance on ‘which plant should go where’.

The gardening school runs seasonal courses throughout the year.

There’s something to suit everyone – from the absolute beginner taking their first steps, to the intermediate looking to hone their skills, right through to the advanced horticulturalist.

RHS trained, all classes are based on the RHS Gardening School framework but without the 2 years of study and exams that frightened off so many.

50% of the students on my course dropped out when they discovered the intense depth of learning expected.

Swan Cottage Gardening School is founded on the need for simple take-away chunks of knowledge to be put into action immediately at an affordable price.

A fun day of shared learning!

We are located in the beautiful Buckinghamshire countryside just on the Bedfordshire, Milton Keynes border. Oxfordshire is right on the doorstep and there is a fast train from London Euston.

What could be better than a blissful day out of the city?

Think of the ‘Chelsea Flower Show’ but in reverse where you hop back in to town with your arms full of rare plants from our Show Garden (portable, affordable sizes)

‘Big Dreams for Small Spaces’ my first garden was a tiny patch in Pimlico London.
