In early May, amateur gardeners will be able to enjoy a leisurely and informative walk around the garden with Jackie Hunt's Late Spring Walk (Tuesday 12th May). Jackie will introduce the garden's history and look at a selection of plants in late Spring. £10.

Those who would like learn how to make their own plants for free will be able to attend the first of its gardening workshops — Propagate your own plants on Thursday 14th May from 10:00-16:00 Horticulturalist Lindsay Engers and Jackie Hunt, Turn End's gardener, will be running this practical and informal workshop and will be introducing propagation activities that can be done during Spring.
