Spaces Available: Propagation Day!

Thursday 29 June 2023

Come and enjoy a day at these beautiful private gardens, starting with tea or coffee and an introduction by Richard Stone, owner of Trevince. This will be followed by a tour of the gardens led by the Estate Gardener, Liam Shoesmith. Lunch will be soup and a roll. In the afternoon Liam will lead a workshop on plant propagation and subsequent nurture. This will include propagation of seeds and of softwood cuttings, as well as discussion of other methods, including division which will be needed in autumn.

Liam spent eight years as a nurseryman at Burncoose Nurseries, and then 16 years at Truro City Council where he was instrumental in the success of the city in Britain in Bloom. He is particularly interested in gardening with wildlife. He is well known throughout Cornwall for his appearances in Radio Cornwall’s Garden Line and for his column in The West Briton.

Cost: £35
Closing Date: Thursday 1 June 2023
