Talks, Lectures & Design Services

Talks & Lectures

For many years we have given talks to local garden clubs and horticultural societies. Ruth began this and together with her mother, Dorothy, has visited most village halls in Norfolk and a good few further afield too!  In more recent years Jonathan and Peter have been involved with these and it is now Peter who more often goes off for an evening to give a talk and show off some of our many digital images of clematis.  

Peter has received many compliments for his talks and the photographs and speaks for some of the countries leading horticultural organisations including the English Garden School at the Chelsea Physic Garden, London.

If you would like to book a date for your club, please telephone the nursery and speak to Peter, or you can e-mail the nursery. Due to the seasonal demands on Peter's time his talk season runs from September to the end of March each year. 

Please use the Contact Us page to make an enquiry.


We run Pruning Demonstrations in February each year - see Pruning Demonstrations on the Current Shows & Events page for details.

If your organisation, club or society would like us to visit your garden to give a demonstration, please use the Contact Us form.

Design Consultations

At Thorncroft Clematis we are always happy to spend time giving help and advice on planting, aftercare, pruning etc to our customers. For many years we have also been delighted to provide more detailed guidance to gardeners and designers who know what they wish to achieve but require our help in selecting the most suitable clematis from the huge number available today.

For a design consultation or even a garden visit, please call the nursery or visit our contact us page to ask for further details and availability.
