Demonstration Courtyard

This multifunctional garden is an interactive outdoor classroom with demonstration areas for courses and workshops for both adults and children. Raised beds, modern vertical trellising and borders located in both sun and shade are used to demonstrate gardening possibilities.


  • Plants have been chosen to demonstrate different gardening techniques, such as propagation, pruning and companion planting.
  • The TBG is committed to environmental responsibility. The horticultural staff uses and promotes organic gardening practices which are taught and demonstrated in this garden.
  • A Straw-bale garden shed was built in this courtyard in April 2008.
