Teaching

“Thank YOU for such a blissful and inspiring afternoon. You are a generous and thoughtful teacher. I need to sign up to more courses – this is just the beginning!”

Non Morris, Gardens Illustrated Magazine

I teach in three ways, to give you the nous to be creative in your garden.

  1. Pruning Workshops
    Focus on practical skills you need to clip. My next workshop is in Kent, September 2022.

    Or contact me to arrange a workshop for your group.
  2. Topiary Design & Composition
    Taught via Zoom, this talk teaches you classic topiary shapes and how to use them in the garden.
    Focus is on creativity and developing your design instinct.

    Book a ticket here.
    Or contact me to book a session for your group.
  3. One To One Practice
    We work together in your garden on your shrubs and topiaries.
    This draws together the practical and creative strands of topiary making, encouraging you to experiment and get better, faster.
    Contact me with your address and what you want to clip in your garden. Prices start from £300.

“Thanks Darren, and what a brilliant morning you gave us all. A fun delivery and lots of good advice.”

Rosemary Alexander, English Gardening School

If you are a keen gardener, or a professional wanting to get creative, these pruning courses are for you.
