To celebrate the end of the first ever virtual Chelsea Flower Show, Matthew will be sharing his top tips on how to plant your very own botanical herb garden at home.

He’ll demonstrate how to plant and even take cuttings from herbs you can get from the supermarket to add to your window box or plant pots (or you could even upcycle a Slingsby Gin presentation box!). The herbs are perfect to add to a G&T or a Slingsby cocktail.

Slingsby Gin contains no fewer than 24 botanicals, with a large proportion of these being grown in their kitchen garden at Rudding Park Hotel in Harrogate which was designed by Matthew Wilson.

Slingsby’s expert mixologist will also give tasty tips on garnish pairings and recommend serves to go with your newly grown herbs. Grab a G&T, sit back and enjoy Slingsby’s floral based Sofa Session.

Slingsby Sofa Sessions will take place on Saturday 23rd May at 3pm live on Instagram and Facebook #Slingsbysofasessions
