Rejuvenate your garden with experienced gardener Gavin Edwards

16th June 2022 / 9:30 am - 1:00 pm

Breathe life back into your garden with the wonderful Gavin Edwards.

Gavin will start by talking to you about his career as a gardener and garden consultant. He will then take the group through some rejuvenation projects he has undertaken in his own gardens. He will then lead the class around the established garden at Far From The Madding Crowd while demonstrating some redesigning, pruning and planting ideas. He will also provide a variety of tips on maintaining an established garden.

Tea/Coffee and cake will be included.

** Please note that this event will take place outdoors, so please ensure that you come dressed for the weather! **

The workshop will be held in the grounds at Far From The Madding Crowd in the village of Leavenheath, CO6 4PU. We will be in touch nearer the time with the exact location and any further information. Tickets are non-refundable.


Gavin Edwards started gardening as a hobby at 16. By 18 he was working professionally as an under gardener at the Church House, Tendring, which is a beautiful Percy Cane-designed formal four-acre garden. He then became the sole gardener running the whole garden. Gavin decided to leave the Church House a few years later to become self-employed. He has now been self-employed for 31 years and maintains mostly large country house gardens. He also works as a garden consultant and has designed gardens which include his own, which has been open to the public a number of times.
