UK Grower Focus
This month we reflect on the current series of Mini Workshops being held by Palmstead Nurseries.
The Green Connection - 'Empowerment through Collaboration'
Palmstead's highly successful Soft Landscaping Workshop in January was a one-day seminar and discussion forum on topics relating to the Landscape industry.
Delegates were drawn from the interconnecting worlds of landscape architecture, garden design, landscape contracting and green space management.
As a follow-up to the January workshop, Palmstead Nurseries are holding a programme of mini-workshops throughout the year to November. The theme for April 24th is 'Planting for drought'. This is followed by 'Making the most of the Web' on May 22nd.
The remaining schedule is as follows:
19 June - 'De-bugging the bugs'
24 July - 'Meeting the challenges of urban planting'
21 Aug - 'Hazard spotting, where do we see risk?'
18 Sept - 'Our environment, our responsibility’
23 Oct - ‘It’s all about the roots - what makes for a sound foundation?'
20 Nov - 'Reliable and robust- Bullet proof gardening'
