Knoll Gardens Events & Classes 2023
There’s always something happening at Knoll Gardens. Our events programme compliments the changing seasons, and runs virtually through the year, providing opportunities for everyone to learn new skills, enjoy our wildlife and discover the way to a beautiful garden with great environmental credentials.
Alongside wildlife events organised by our associated charity, the Knoll Gardens Foundation (Reg Charity 1159390), Knoll’s owner Neil Lucas leads regular horticultural walks, talks and masterclasses in the garden. As the UK’s leading authority on ornamental grasses, Neil can also be found speaking and lecturing across the UK and overseas.
Hardy Plant Society – Devon Group Lecture
At the invitation of the HPS Devon Group Neil presents his lecture;
More ‘wow’ and less work; grasses and their place in our gardens
Discover more about Neil’s specialist subject in his keynote lecture as he explores the use of grasses in our designed spaces. From the naturalistic style of meadows and prairies to rain gardens and alternative lawns, grasses offer environmentally conscious gardeners an enticing mix of nature friendly informal design and easy maintenance. Combining cultural information with Neil’s personal gardening philosophy this brings the story of his work and developments at Knoll Gardens right up-to-date
Childrens Event; Festive Wreath Making
From 10.30am to 12noon, enjoy a walk around the garden gathering materials before making a simple wreath out of willow and decorating it with your gathered finds.
Please bring secateurs if you have them, children will need help from an adult to make and decorate their wreath.
Organised by the garden’s charity, the Knoll Gardens Foundation, our children’s events are suitable for children aged three years and upwards. Activities encourage a love of nature from a young age, inspiring children and their parents or carers to interact with the garden’s many wildlife inhabitants as well as its trees and flowers.
There is limited shelter in the garden, so please dress for the weather on the day. Planned activities may be subject to change or cancellation at short notice depending on the weather conditions.
All children must be accompanied by an adult (max of 2 adults per child ticket).
All proceeds go towards supporting the work of the Knoll Gardens Foundation (Reg Charity 1159390).
