Berrington’s Senior Gardener, David Thresher, has been trained to the highest standard within the National Trust. Starting his journey at Dunster Castle, David quickly worked his way up and soon became the Senior Gardener for Berrington. Always espousing the National Trust’s core values of conservation and caring for nature, David is a highly regarded Gardener and visitors will gain invaluable knowledge from spending one-to-one time with him. David says: “These workshops are the ideal opportunity for anyone to discover how we take care of Berrington’s garden and be able to transfer some of this knowledge into their own home. Whether you have no experience of gardening, or know a lot, this is a chance to get a behind-the-scenes insight into how we care for gardens at the National Trust.”
Berrington’s workshops are taking place throughout the year and are all seasonally themed. Visitors are encouraged to visit Berrington’s website and have a look at what’s on offer and book a place if they want to learn more.
