Training Days

PlantNetworks holds meetings at gardens to support horticultural networking and hands on-training depending on the arrangements for the day.  These are small and relaxed meetings allowing networking with other PlantNetwork members and an opportunity to go home inspired with new contacts, ideas, and skills.

Thank you to all the gardens who have thrown open their doors and gates, if you would like to host a meeting or training day please contact us.
