New Course at Hidden Valley Gardens
Introduction to Ferns
Saturday, 23rd September 2017, 2pm - 5.30pm
£30 per person to include a Cream Tea
Cornwall is an ideal place for ferns with its mild and humid climate and we have such unique sunken lanes with shady banks where ferns love to grow. I have started collecting a wide variety of ferns here at Hidden Valley Gardens and would like to share my enthusiasm with you on this half day course. There will be a power point presentation with every aspect of fern life, habitats, propagation garden worthy ferns and the Victorian fern craze. This will be followed by a cream tea and stroll around the gardens here at Hidden Valley to see my fern collection and new ferns being grown from spores.
Please email me at email@example.com to book your place. I will then send a confirmation letter with details of payment options.
