Spring in the Garden

30th March £85

Tutor. Kate Tuke

We will look at and discuss: –

  • Soil structure and why it is important to maintain good structure.
  • Common pests and diseases and beneficial insects.
  • Mulches, soil additives and fertilisers.
  • Identifying gaps in the borders and what to consider when buying plants to fill the gap.
  • Planting of herbaceous plants, shrubs and trees.

Back in the warmth of the Poly tunnel we will discuss the seasonal tasks in more detail as well as the tasks coming up in the next couple of months.
After a delicious lunch we will turn our attention to propagation, you will try your hand at sowing some flower and vegetable seeds, which you can take home at the end of the day. We will discuss other ways to increase the plants in your garden and you will get to try taking some cuttings. With any time remaining we will look at some of the bulbs that can be planted now in pots or the garden for flowering in late summer and autumn.
You should go away with lots of practical information and inspiring ideas. There will be some handouts, but you may like to bring a note book as not everything will be captured.
You will need to bring suitable clothing and footwear for the garden walk. We will provide gloves and everything that you need for the propagation element of the day.

How a day works. The day starts at 10 am and finishes at 4.30pm but the kettle is on from 9.30 so come and have a coffee and meet up.
All materials are included (unless extra ones requested). If the weather is likely to be warm we might suggest you bring a sun hat and some insect repellent.
Lunches are included in the cost of the course and always vegetarian and are cooked using our own ingredients grown in the veg plot wherever possible. If you have any special dietary requirements please let us know when booking your place.
Tea, coffee and cool drinks are always on offer throughout the day.

If you need somewhere to stay – check out our accommodation page!
