Tablescaping, Lunch, Flower arranging & Garden tour


Date: Friday, 23rd June 2023


Time: 10.00 - 4.00 pm 

Location:  Upper Sydling House, Up Sydling, Dorchester

Dorset DT2 9PH






This is a chance to celebrate summer and the joy it brings at the headiest time in the garden - the roses will be in full bloom, including the ramblers - and we look forward to immersing you in the scent and froth of the garden, at this prime time of the season.

You will have coffee on arrival, after which our teacher will demonstrate how to make a whimsical, scented and packed with colour tablescape, which you can then enjoy whilst we stop and sit down for lunch at the ‘just-tablescaped’ lunch table.
After lunch you will head to the floral studio in the heart of the garden, to learn to make a flower arrangement using a selection of beautiful roses and flowers from the cutting garden. There will also be the chance to have a guided tour of the garden and to see over 100 varieties of roses and nearly 400 in number, at this time. (A list of the roses we have in the garden is on the Roses page of the website).

The day will finish with tea and cake, and there will be time for any questions you may have, before you leave with your beautiful arrangement to enjoy at home.

The image used is not exactly representative of the day, we aim to surprise you.

This workshop is suitable for all levels of experience, from beginner upwards.

Should you wish to book a place to give to a friend, we can send a personal gift voucher out to them.  Please email us if this is the case.
