Events And Classes

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.
