Successful practical workshops

The first three practical workshops in our Craft Skills for Garden Conservation-project are now over, and thanks to the participants and tutors, they where a success.
– Norges grønne fagskole – Vea hosted the Soil management in Historic Gardens
– Gunnebo House and Gardens hosted the Lawn and meadow cultivation in Historic Gardens
– PlantNetwork member Audley End House and Gardens hosted the Trained Fruit in Historic Kitchen Garden.

The video documentation – capturing the best practice within the topics – will be available for all soon. Until then, – we would like to share some images with you!

Other Garden Conservation

We cooperate with other actors in the heritage garden community throughout Europe, and here is some info about upcoming events hosted by some of them.


Join the team at Gunnebo gardens in Sweden for a two-day practical workshop in which we investigate the impact of historical techniques and tools on both the aesthetic and horticultural development of hedges.


On the 7th of February 2023, Gunnebo House and Gardens is hosting the webinar on Hedges and Topiary cultivation in Historic Gardens.
It’s time! The Orangery at Gunnebo will finally be opening and we’re celebrating by inviting you all to our very first crafts festival. Are you interested in heritage crafts like wood and stone carving, timber framing or how to make a tiled stove? Would you like to know more about orangery plants and mowing with scythes? Then this is the perfect event for you.


Gunnebo is hosting this four days workshop, with the topic ‘Lawns and meadow cultivation in Historic Gardens’ which is a follow up on the webinar earlier this year.
