Learn the craft of creative garden design from an award-winning exponent
The Cornwall Garden Society’s (CGS) March lectures – the last of the 2017/2018 series – are by leading horticulturalist and garden designer, Andy McIndoe.
With more than 40 years’ experience in retail and production horticulture, Andy was responsible for 25 consecutive Gold Medal winning exhibits at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show for Hilliers Nursery when he was Managing Director.
Andy’s special interests include hardy shrubs, trees, herbaceous perennials, flower bulbs and garden design, and he has authored books on all of these subjects.
He was awarded the prestigious Veitch Memorial Medal (one of the highest accolades in the world of horticulture) by the RHS in 2017 in recognition of his outstanding contribution to the science and practice of horticulture.
The Creative Shrub Garden will be his subject on Tuesday 13th March at 7.30pm at the Alverton Hotel in Truro, whilst Designing and Planting a Small Garden will be his focus on Wednesday 14th March at 2.30pm at the Penventon Park Hotel in Redruth.
These lectures are free for CGS members. Non-members are welcome to attend to find out more about the Society and donations are gratefully received.
A local nursery will be on hand to tempt attendees with high quality plants for sale.
Our members have some truly beautiful and interesting gardens. Take a look to see some of the wonderful things growing.
You can take out CGS membership as an individual or as a family and there are lots of benefits.
This lovingly-restored Arts and Crafts house offers an inspiring Edwardian garden and far-reaching views of Dartmoor.
The garden features an Italian Terrace, rolling lawns, woodland walks, extensive herbaceous borders and ponds. We will be given an introductory talk on the garden by its owner.
A tour of the house is available for an additional £5, payable on the day. There is only time for one tour of the house for the first 17 people who complete and return this booking.
