Due to Government restrictions this year we have had to reduce the classes to max 5 people. Classes this year will be held in an outdoor but undercover environment - so please dress appropriately. We are also asking for face coverings to be worn at all times. 

Please see Covid-19 contingency plan below for more information.

Covid 19 Contingency Plan:

Due to the uncertainty of Covid-19 and the constant change in measures - we are putting in place a contingency plan of action!

In tier 1 and 2 the workshop can go ahead. We have already halved the capacity of the event to allow everyone to have their own table. Face coverings would need to be worn throughout, hand sanitiser and sinks are available and our events are certified as covid-secure.


Should we be in tier 3, 4 or lockdown at the time of the classes then unfortunately events are unable to go ahead -  we would therefore open up the following options. These options would also be available should you or your party become symptomatic of covid19 within 14 days preceding the event.
- We would make your basket to your colour scheme, provide the grow on service and then arrange collection or delivery as required.
- We could arrange collection or delivery of the 'kit' to make your own basket at home - please note this is only advisable should you have your own heated greenhouse.
- Credit note for the full amount or event transfer to another class.


We grow all our own bedding plants here at Flitton's and the packs for these classes are bespoke to us.
The retail price for one of these baskets when sold is £54.99 due to the amount of plants included and time taken to create these wonderful show stoppers. These baskets sell out year-on-year!


We look forward to welcoming you to this workshop and we do very much hope that this will be in person this year!
