Box of Tricks Topic: The Year Round Garden


We all want a lovely garden all year round but we also want change through the seasons and combining the two is not always simple.  This topic explains how you can ‘have it all’.


The Year Round Garden considers the elements of a garden that provide structure, colour and texture, looks at how to get the most impact from the space in your beds and borders and helps you to choose plants for every season of the year whether you are replanting a whole border or filling a few gaps.

You get approximately an hour of material, split across three videos so that you can watch in easy to manage sections and get out into the garden in between to make the most of the information.  There are plenty of photographs, diagrams, examples and summaries to help you get to grips with the topic and even a few questions for you to answer (out loud if you are feeling brave!).
