Garden Workshop - Propagation Techniques @ Turn End Garden, Haddenham | Haddenham | England | United Kingdom

Using Turn End garden in Haddenham to identify and collect plant materials, Jackie Hunt (Turn End’s gardener) and Lindsey Engers (horticulturalist and garden advisor) will demonstrate and explain easy methods to propagate plants from your garden by techniques such as leaf, stem and root cuttings. Some unusual techniques such as using water and gel to grow cuttings, as well as propagating from succulents and houseplants, will also be explored.

There will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions and practice cuttings to take home. By the end of the workshop, you should be able to have some understanding of how plant physiology informs propagation methods, identify a selection of plants suitable for stem, leaf and root cuttings, have some knowledge of the process of taking a range of cuttings and understand which time of year to take them, understand suitable compost and containers as well as conditions for growing cuttings.

Turn End, is a small but very special corner of Haddenham, made up of an award-winning house and an internationally renowned garden designed by Haddenham architect, Peter Aldington, in the 1960s. The contemporary design of the house, one of a cluster of three, combines modern architecture with traditional features of village buildings – something of a symbol for times of change, and still feels fresh and modern, even after 50 years. The garden, created as a natural extension to the house, is rich in unexpected angles, nooks and vistas and has become a source of inspiration for gardeners from around the world. It is also home to two artists’ studios. Awarded the Royal Institute of British Architects Award for Architecture in 1970, the ensemble of house and garden is widely regarded as a prime example of the blend between modern architecture and landscape design and attracts visitors from across the UK and beyond, many having become architects or landscape designers as a result.
