COVID 19; With a paramount need for safety, a reduced staff, and a courier system at full stretch it is quite probable that order turnaround and deliveries will take longer than we would normally expect. We are currently estimating orders will take 15 to 20 working days to be despatched from date of order. Please bear with us during these unique circumstances; we are doing our best to provide the service that we would like.

To Cut or Not to Cut ?

..that is the question that Neil will be answering on the 16th March during the Preparing for Spring mini masterclass that kicks off the events programme at Knoll Gardens this year.

Grasses are a beautiful easy care group of plants that provide both beauty and utility in our gardens; but to get the best out of the plants a little timely maintenence is needed. There are two types of grasses when it comes to pruning and aftercare, those that are evergreen and those that are deciduous, and Neil will explain the different techniques needed to keep grasses looking great for the rest of the year.

Grasses will grow in pots and containers very successfully, but again a little annual looking after is needed to avoid potbound plants that disappoint during the season. ‘Healthy roots mean healthy shoots’, and Neil will look at the simple steps needed to achieve this.

Over 70 events take place in the garden this year. Alongside wildlife and lifestyle walks and workshops, a range of new horticultural events and Masterclasses will mark owner Neil Lucas’s 25th year at Knoll Gardens. 2019 also sees Knoll’s first Festival of Grasses, celebrating the garden’s stunning autumn colour.
