Designing and Planting Summer Hanging Baskets

Designing and Planting Summer Hanging Baskets


Why spend a fortune buying summer hanging baskets, when you can design and produce your own high quality and unique summer hanging baskets.

The hanging basket and container market is the most popular sector within the horticulture sector. The vast range of plants available will be discussed and the best ways to combine them along with planting and aftercare tips. You will also be able to take away a planted basket with you. This course is a real money saver.

    The course is held at our Horticulture Base at Sherdley Park. 

    Topics covered:

    • Designing, planting and growing summer hanging baskets and containers
    • Choosing baskets/containers
    • Preparation and compost use
    • Choosing plants
    • Planting and aftercare
    • Propagation of baskets plants
    • Take home a planted hanging basket or container

    The course is delivered in a very relaxed manner with plenty of opportunity to ask questions and group discussion.

    No previous qualifications are required, just a willingness to learn!  The course is aimed to increase your own knowledge of the subject so there will be no formal assessment. A college participation certificate will be issued for those that attend. Outdoor clothing and footwear are required.

    The cost of the course includes all necessary materials and equipment, plus you will take home your very own unique summer hanging basket.

    Once I finish the course, what can I go on to do?
