Course: Grow your own vegetables, 11 march

Following on from our successful ‘Grow your own vegetables’ course with Jim Williams from the National Vegetable Society in April last year we have decided to run it again this year.

Join us at Damhead Nursery on 11th March 2011 where vegetable expert Jim Williams from the National Vegetable Society will be introducing you to the delights of growing your own food, how to establish a kitchen garden and pick up simple tips to get you started, whether you have a large overgrown plot, small patch or a window box. He will cover topics such as seed sowing, getting the best out of your greenhouse, pests/weed control, composting, crop rotation and soil preparation. After his talk we will venture into the nursery for a hands-on practical exercise. If you would like more information or to book a place on the course please email michelles@damheadnursery.co.uk. Cost £25.00 includes tea/coffee & cake.
