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.
The sun may be shining but the temperatures are low - cover up tender plants and seedlings with fleece until the bise has dropped and the temperatures have risen.
The sky is blue, the sun is shining and the blossoms are out in all their glory - such a tremendous start to the year. We are excited to start our courses and garden tours and hope to have some of you join us this year.
Well winter is certainly upon us; heavy snow, high winds and freezing temperatures remind us that the best place to be is inside. Curl up with a good gardening book or seed catalogue and start to make a list of all the wonderful things you'd like to do this year in your garden.
