Taking inspiration from nature
The Ed’s team had an early start (even by gardener standards!) last week. We got up with the lark and were out in force for our seasonal visit to RHS Wisley, Surrey. Our spring training session is an important event in the Ed’s calendar.
On arrival, we kicked off the morning with an expert-led classroom session. You can’t help being impressed by our expert’s encyclopaedic knowledge of all things garden-related. It is great to hear about all the new products and developments in the world of gardening. We know how important that is to provide the best possible gardening services to our lovely customers. We continued with a full briefing on recent changes in gardening regulations and wound up our session with an open-floor question and answer session.
We can’t visit RHS Wisley without taking a tour of the beautiful gardens. We are always bowled over by their stunning displays and spring is very special indeed. It is so inspiring to seeing gardening creativity at work in this very special place. The gardens are even more magical in the early morning light, before all the visitors arrive.
We were lucky to be visiting while it felt like spring (before the snow hit Surrey again!)
Back to business
Our training was all done and dusted by 9.30 am. We had time for a quick chat after the session before we headed back home to get on with the very important business of keeping our customers happy.
The RHS Wisley location
Ed’s Garden Services Operators were out in force last week for another great training session at RHS Wisley. The Ed’s team visits RHS Wisley in all seasons. It looks absolutely stunning at any time of the year. This was our view from the office …
The training we get there is truly excellent – we have access to the best horticultural expertise there is.
We always plan our Ed’s training sessions to coincide with the changing seasons and go for an early start to avoid disruption to our Garden Operators’ busy work schedules. Our Wisley training sessions really help Ed’s Garden Operators to prepare for the season ahead and to apply their learning in their customers’ gardens.
What we cover
Last week, we covered a whole range of horticultural topics. We learned about recent developments in new technologies for re-turfing lawns, advanced methods of dealing with problem areas with existing lawns and also got some great tips relating to hedges. Planting was also covered, which is always great to unleash our Garden Operators’ creativity. We finished off with a session on important new developments. This included health and safety regulations to make sure our Garden Operators’ are kept fully up to date in this important area.
No visit to Wisley would be complete without a stroll round the beautiful gardens. It is quite magical to be there before the gates are open to visitors for the day. Autumn was certainly showing itself in all its glory. What a great start to a gardening day!
