We are very lucky to have the opportunity to explore the world famous landscape of the National Trust’s Stourhead property in Wiltshire with its head gardener Alan Power on Friday 17 October at 10.30am for an 11am start.
Alan and the team will include an organic propagation master class and the opportunity to see the fabulous Pelargonium collection.
Stourhead will be at its best during the autumn with the kaleidoscope of seasonal colours displayed by the variety of trees. This landscaped garden has at its centrepiece a magnificent lake reflecting classical temples, mystical grottoes, and rare and exotic trees. Although the tour itself is unlikely to cover the whole 2,650 acres (!) it promises to describe the fascinating history of this “living work of art”. (As described when Stourhead first opened in the 1740s).
As a super exclusive our guests will even be given an email address directly to the gardening team who will provide on-going advice to help you in your gardening challenges.
A wonderful treat for all of us. Please do let us know as soon as possible if you would like to join us.

When? Friday 17 October 10.30am for 11am start.
What to wear: Comfy shoes
