First Time Gardener – 6-session ZOOM course

Tuesday 16th March - Tuesday 20th April

Nurturing a garden/allotment and being outside, even in winter, can be healthy, rewarding, creative and fun. 

Be inspired as you learn the basics of gardening with the Garden House.  Our course is designed for beginner gardeners – to improve your knowledge and skills and to give you the confidence to grow and look after your plants.

Initially, each session will be by Zoom lasting about 2 hours (we hope this may become socially distanced face-to-face at The Garden House, Brighton, as the course progresses).  To include:

  • Start a productive vegetable and/or cut flower patch
  • Composting and making your garden more sustainable
  • Propagation – how to make more plants by seed sowing and cuttings
  • Selection of 5 plants each week to discuss their role in the garden
  • Introduction to basic botany – how plants work
  • Introduction to pruning
  • Plus a look at pest, weed and disease control

Alongside horticultural theory, we will have practical demonstrations of what to do in the garden at the moment.  Plus there will be a Q and A session each week where you will be able to ask advice about your own garden.

An invitation to Zoom will be sent to you on the day, so you will need to be familiar with communicating through Zoom.

Date:  Tuesday evenings 6.30pm – 8.30pm / 16, 23, 30 March, then 6, 13, 20 April

Cost: £175 to include weekly handouts (as attachments), to support each session.

Please BOOK ONLINE– if you are unable to pay online, please contact us to find out about alternative ways of paying.  Limited to 12 participants, so do book soon!
