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 !!
