Group bookings and bespoke courses: We can put on special dates for you and your family or friends and do bespoke courses for groups either at our site or we can come out to you.
Plant Nursery & Garden: We have a sister enterprise ‘La Petite Pépinière de La Guinandie’ where we grow and sell herbaceous perennials, cottage garden plants, herbs, ornamental edibles, dye plants, grasses, veg plants etc from our own nursery. Our garden is open for nursery customers when the nursery is open; Saturdays between March and end of October 10.00-4.00 also weekdays by appointment only- please check with us that we are here/available before coming. Closed Sundays. We can also do guided tours and talks for garden clubs, art and craft groups, photography groups and other local clubs by prior appointment.
Consultancy: We can also offer individual garden consultancy and design, and private tuition. Please get in touch if you or your group are interested in consultancy, a bespoke course or private tuition on any horticultural subject – we are open to suggestions – and are happy to come out to your garden club to do talks, demonstrations and bespoke courses.
Holiday activities: if you fancy coming on one of our courses as part of a holiday in the region, and need accommodation we can recommend Le Moulin de Pensol. Only 20 minutes away, the English owners have 3 en suite chambres d’hotes rooms (bed and breakfast) and 3 gites (cottages). The pretty little river Bandiat flows through the garden and there are grounds of 20 acres for guests to explore. More information, prices and lots of photos are available on their website www.lemoulindepensol.com .
