We are excited to announce that our popular spring hanging basket and planted container workshop returns to Hillier Garden Centres this May.

At this creative, hands-on workshop we will give you all the support whilst you learn, with helpful tips from our plant experts, as well as all the materials you need to brighten up your garden with an array of colourful spring planting.

At the event, you can decide between one of three options: create two beautiful hanging baskets displays; create two stunning planted containers or – if you’re feeling particularly daring – create one of each!

With a break included for a delicious Hillier cream tea, this is an opportunity to create beautiful displays for your garden while enjoying a very social afternoon and meeting new people.

Get ready to roll up your sleeves and actively participate with this workshop!
