The Magic of Gardening
1 August @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 6:00 pm on Sunday, repeating until 12 September, 2021
The Magic of Gardening is an eight-week course that is designed to inform, inspire and empower you to
achieve your gardening goals.
The course is unique in that it is designed to be practical, as it is important to me that everything you learn is
useful and can be easily applied. Over the course of eight weeks, you will therefore acquire a wealth of
theoretical and practical knowledge that will give you the confidence to enjoy and explore your own garden
in a way that works for you.
The course will begin with the fundamentals of gardening and progress onto specifically selected content
from the Royal Horticultural Society’s (RHS) Level 2 Certificate in Horticulture. Whether you have prior
experience in gardening or not, this will give you the tools to understand what is happening in your garden
and enable you to work effectively with the space you have. If you have practical experience but have never
learnt the theory behind what you are doing, you are likely to have many ‘aha!’ moments and smile as you
come to understand why you were, or were not, successful in your previous explorations.
Alongside the theory, the course will demonstrate how this information can be used in a real-life setting. In
each session I present a table of various plants for identification and give physical examples of the concepts
introduced. In addition to this, we consider best horticultural practice, and I will share stories of my own
successes and failures so that you can better understand how everything you learn within the classroom comes to life within the garden
