High Impact, Low Maintenance – How to Plan your First Garden

If you want to know how to make the best of your first garden, but have no idea where to start, this is the talk for you!

Darren Lerigo, Director of Modern Mint will guide you through the best way to use your outdoor room without having to spend hours nurturing and maintaining it!

The talk will cover:

  • Simple modern designs that stand out
  • Plants with the “wow” factor
  • Positive impact on the environment for the better; lawns become meadows
  • Bring the garden indoors – decorate your house with beautiful home grown flowers
  • Economical – grow your own fruit and veg

Join Modern Mint for an evening of the real tips and tricks to get a garden that wows your family and friends with minimal effort all in time for summer … and a slice of cake at the Lemon Tree Café.

This talk would be suitable for beginner gardeners.
