Gardening Courses

The beautiful surroundings, wide range of plants and relaxed, informal classes make learning at Waterperry gardens a pleasure and an inspiration. We offer a wide range of short gardening courses suitable for the beginner and more experienced gardener.

Originally designed as a teaching resource for the famous horticultural school, Waterperry's gardens provides many examples of garden features both old and new. There are also working nurseries, a plant centre and orchards, all of which are used to enhance the learning experience. And the homemade produce in our excellent teashop will tempt you to treat yourself to lunch and perhaps tea as well.
