Hillier announce the return of its popular autumn planting workshops across the company’s 19 garden centres from September.

There are two autumn workshops to choose from this year; hanging baskets and planted containers, and autumn bulb planting. Each workshop is approximately two and a half hours, and provides everything needed to add a splash of colour to gardens. The session has hands-on participation and support from knowledgeable Hillier plant experts.

From September 13thto 15th, participants of the hanging baskets and planted containers workshop can choose between creating two hanging basket displays, two planted containers, or one of each item to take away and proudly display at home.

Between 11th and 13th October, Hillier is hosting its autumn bulb planting workshops where participants will create two beautiful bulb containers to take home. Learning how to select the right pots and create complementary bulb planting schemes achieving, colour with interesting plant combinations, this promises to be an enjoyable session

Hillier retail and wholesale director, Chris Francis, said: “Our planting workshops are incredibly popular, and we’re so pleased to be hosting them for another year. These workshops are perfect whether you’re a beginner or a well-seasoned gardener, as our plant experts are there to guide you with their helpful tips and information.”

A place at each workshop is £50, which includes the demonstration and hands-on support, everything needed to create two planted displays. A Hillier cream tea, and a helpful information card to take home is also included. Workshops are limited to 10 people and are based on a first-come, first-served basis. The Hillier workshops are the perfect opportunity to socialise and meet new people while learning invaluable information about autumnal planting. The Hillier Garden Centre Braishfield will be running the workshop from Ampfield House, just a short distance away from the centre.
