A new season begins and with it some changes to the Swiss Gardening School.
After seven years of busy group courses we have decided to take a sabbatical from teaching to concentrate on other projects. Hester will publish a book in the spring and Tara will continue to advise gardeners on a personal level.
We will continue to be active on FaceBook and Instagram and look forward to your keeping in touch via our contact us tab below.
Summer sees us taking a break from teaching. We'll be back in the autumn with more Saturday morning pop-ups and a range of morning and evening short masterclasses. In the meantime enjoy your garden.
The roses have opened and their scent fills the air with fragrance. Now is the time to be out enjoying your garden. Lots to do, trimming, staking, weeding of course but most of all enjoying the beauty growing around us. Happy summer gardening to all.
We'll spend this weekend in the grounds of the beautiful Château de Coppet at the garden event of the year Jardins en Fête. Come by and enjoy everything horticultural.
Finally, spring has arrived! The weather may be chilly and the days still a little dark but we are well on our way to another growing season.
We are excited to use this quiet time in the garden to plan some exciting new mini pop-up sessions for you for the Spring.
What better way to jump start your weekend with a short and intense gardening session on the tricky questions you have about your garden. These new mini session will aim to get right to the issues that most bother you. We aim to help you solve those niggling problems about lawns and pruning, among others, and get you moving this season to get the most from your garden.
September is a time for new beginnings and after five years of running regular classes new projects are beginning to take up more of our time. With this in mind we are changing our approach to classes. We will no longer publish a calendar of classes but will continue to run bespoke classes on demand. Simply contact us with your request and we will look forward to accommodating your wishes. Bespoke classes must have at least four participants. Click here for a list of our previous classes.
Summer is all about salad, lettuce leaves, tomatoes and aubergines. If you'd like to learn more our final veggies course will be held on Tuesday morning 13 June.
With baking hot temperatures and clear blue skies we've been enjoying an early start to summer. Early morning or evening watering is a good idea, avoid daytime watering and remember to water only the soil and not the leaves. Enjoy the sunshine.
