The training is aimed at those who work in private or public horticulture including managers of parks, open spaces, grounds maintenance, greenkeepers, head gardeners, garden designers and landscapers.

It will cover the increasingly popular use of wildflowers and naturalistic plantings in gardens and green spaces. Wildflowers will be defined in a horticultural context, and both stylistic and practical issues addressed.
Designer, writer and Landscape Man presenter Matthew Wilson will be the keynote speaker, and representatives will also attend from across the four RHS Gardens, Pictorial Meadows, Wildflower Turf UK and Bristol City Council.
There will also be a stand from wildflower seed merchant John Chambers.

Training will be held at RHS Gardens Wisley, Surrey.
