Gardening Masterclass

Welcome to our site that aims to enthuse, inspire and inform you with our impartial tutorials, ideas and advice for beginners and seasoned gardeners alike, from makeovers to maintenance.

However you see gardening – a pleasure or a chore – the methods are the same. With a good design, the right plants and equipment, and the know-how, you can produce wonderful results quickly and easily, with plenty of time over to enjoy your outdoor room.

Plan your visits to shows and events, and sign up for courses

See our calendar of major shows and events, including lectures, demonstrations and hands-on courses.

Plan your buying/planting of seeds, bulbs and plants

Browse, compare and buy from our online garden centre. Look for the current discount deals and longer-term special offers from leading suppliers. And for inspiration and ideas, flip through Crocus’ online magazine.
