25- 26 April 2019
Billed as two days of ‘total tulip immersion’ this Spring workshop has pulled in some of the biggest names in the world of flowers. There will be a talk from Anna Pavord, author of The Tulip and the world’s authority when it comes to tulips, flower arranging with Shane Connolly, florist by Royal Appointment to HM The Queen, planting and soil advice from expert growers, The Land Gardeners and talks on fashion and styling from Electric Daisy Flower Farm. The 2-day event is set at the beautiful Bayntun Flowers at Blackland Park in Wiltshire where fifteen thousand tulips will be in full flower, including almost 50 different historic cultivars and a small quantity of English Florists’ Tulips which are the most prized of all.
Tickets will include private access to the formal and productive gardens at Blackland Park, with tours by owner, Polly Nicholson and head gardener Hannah Gardner, plant specialist and writer for Gardens Illustrated. And as well as the daytime talks and workshops there will be a drinks and dinner on the Thursday evening too.
