Vicky Adam ran a fantastic day training at a customers garden in Dunsfold where the ornamental grasses were looking their best. Lots of Grayshaw and Yeo Gardeners got to meet one another, after the lack of gatherings that we have had over the last year or so, making our first training session in 2 years extra special.
Vicky started with an introduction to a variety of different grasses by showing a jug full of lovely different blades and flowering spikes, giving an opportunity to directly compare and contrast their form, height and texture.
This was followed by a walk around the garden looking at all the individual grasses in situ and explaining their different characteristics. This was important for the team as we could understand not only, where you want to place them, but also the after care they will need. We all discovered that from evergreen to deciduous, structural to floaty, ornamental grasses are a wonderful fit for every occasion!
