Event description


The Inside Dig is an innovative new workshop where you can share stories and insights on gardening with experts from the Yates Garden Company and the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney in a relaxed and friendly setting.

Each workshop includes:

  • Expert presentation from leading horticulturalist, Angie Thomas from Yates
  • Hands on, practical gardening workshop
  • Specialist tour of the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney
  • Questions, discussions and sharing of gardening stories
  • Goodie bag to take home

Next workshop: Growing Native Plants

Come along to this special twilight workshop to get all the tips and tricks for growing beautiful native plants.

Expert Angie Thomas will share her expertise on planting and growing native plants, including the best things to grow in Sydney, and the versatility of native plants including fantastic new varieties for smaller spaces - with larger flowers and compact growth.

We’ll be getting our hands dirty - with a rare opportunity to actually take part in planting in the Royal Botanic Garden. We'll join the Garden's Horticulturists to plant out some natives in the iconic Australian Rockery, in sight of the Opera House and Harbour Bridge!

The Garden tour will be led by one of our Aboriginal Educators, who will guide you through the Cadi Jam Ora Garden, featuring plants of the Sydney Sandstone Basin. The tour will focus on the connections between Aboriginal people, local plants and culture.
