The Raymond Blanc Gardening School

Opening Times

9:00am to 3:30pm each week (July-October)
Additional courses all-year round.

Raymond Blanc and the garden team welcome home gardeners to the only gardening school in the world set within the grounds of a 2 Michelin starred hotel and restaurant. Whether you’ve had green fingers for many years, or are just starting out, they will give you all the tips you need to get your garden growing. The beautiful Hartley Botanic glasshouse will be your home for the day as you enjoy learning from the experts with a range of exciting and interactive courses.

They will reveal how to choose the best varieties, nurture your plants and enjoy the satisfaction of a bountiful harvest; be it a dainty crop of micro herbs or digging-up your first spadeful of organic Jersey Royals. Join them for a day of discovery and celebrate the magic of growing, whilst being immersed in an array of no less than 250 varieties of heritage vegetables.

Guests joining the courses will be based in the Hartley Botanic Glasshouse in the Heritage Garden. One day courses will run from 10.30am to 3.30pm with refreshments throughout and a working lunch.
