If you’re planning a BBQ or garden party this summer then Richardson’s Walled Garden at CAFRE’s Greenmount Campus is the perfect place to learn how to produce the perfect bouquet for alfresco dining.

As part of the college’s Floristry Open Weekend (on Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd July) the floristry team will also be on hand to teach you how to use plants inside to make your home healthier. 

You can also hear about how successful the floristry students’ have been in recent design competitions and find out more about the floristry and horticulture courses at Greenmount and careers in floristry and horticulture.
