How can you plan succession planting so your garden maintains interest all year round? What plants can you grow? How do you maintain such a garden ?  This workshop aims to help you plan for a really good display every month of the year

Workshop 2 The Cutting Garden Wednesday 13th July 2011

Do you wish you could fill your house with beautiful cut blooms through the year, at a fraction of the cost of buying ?

Diana will help you plan, advise on the types of flowers and the care and maintenance of your cutting bed .

Diana has also suggested that people could bring any unwanted plants, cuttings etc for a plant swap. This worked very well at the courses Jenny attendedPerhaps this could be the start of a local gardening group  !!
