Gardening Courses Norfolk

Gardening in Norfolk is close to my heart, as my grandfather worked for the Earl of Leicester at Holkham Hall on his estate. This is where he learnt his incredible horticultural knowledge, and passed down his love of gardening through several generations. He spent his 96 years, sharing gardening knowledge, both formally and informally to all who would listen. Norfolk of course is also a very fertile growing area, known for market gardening, with some beautiful spots, both natural and cultivated. We have all sorts of courses at MyGardenSchool, wherever you are located in Norfolk, to help you hone your horticultural skills, ranging from vegetable gardening, henkeeping, garden design, specialist plant growing, or evening building your own treehouses!.
