About the event

After decades of meeting with frustrated gardeners, landscape designer Rebecca Sweet has broken down the primary causes of garden-related headaches into seven main categories.

Mistakes such as single season gardens, overcrowding, and one-of-each-itis (to name just a few) can often derail the best of intentions. Using photos and solutions that are inspiring, informative, and easy to put into practice, you’ll soon be on your way to a glorious garden.

Seven Sins of Garden Design:

· Creating a single season garden

· Believing the no-maintenance myth

· Suffering from one-of-each-itis

· Overcrowding a new garden

· Tiny garden = tiny plants

· Contrast is lacking

· Taking things too seriously!
