Horticulture

The Horticulture Department invites people to try gardening as a leisure pursuit, a therapeutic activity or as a way of learning new skills to enable them to progress to a vocational qualification.

Activities include hanging baskets, summer bedding plants, sowing seeds, fresh wreath making, Christmas Hyacinths, para cord weaving including bracelets, and woodwork.

Service users also get involved in wildlife projects such as bird watching, making bird feeders and insect homes, while we also offer willow weaving programmes that start with wreaths, plant support and small Christmas projects and move on to lanterns, large structures and animals.
