Gardening Courses

Growing from Seed – most plants produce seed that happily flourish in their natural environment, but we are not always as successful at growing from seed in our own gardens and greenhouses. During this workshop we will look at seeds, and what they need to grow. Whether you want to create a flower patch to keep you supplied in summer flowers, or start own vegetable garden, we will look at choosing seeds, and create your own planting calendar to get you started and that you can add to from year to year.

Wednesday, 16th March 2022 from 10:00am-12:00pm

Tickets are £28.00pp and can be booked at the Admissions Desk or by emailing events@kirkleathamwalledgarden.co.uk
