• Garden Design Course

    25th January 2014GeneralStephanie Donaldson

    The gardens verdant at Allt-y-Bela Garden Designer Arne Maynard is running a series of courses in June based at Allt-y-Bela his magical home and garden near Usk in Monmouthshire. There are three one-day courses on: colour in the garden; creating contemporary meadow gardens; and a look at the historical garden details that Arne draws inspiration from and uses throughout his garden designs. Each day runs from 9.45-5pm. and includes a delicious home-cooked lunch of local produce with regular refreshments and cake. Courses cost £220 – top drawer prices – but so is the teaching and the setting. I’ve been to one of his days and found it hugely informative and inspiring. Allt-y-Bela is also run as a b&b and is a sublime place for any gardener to stay. Gardener in training with Arne Maynard
