Gardening Advice & Lessons

Gardening for Beginners Course - An introduction - full day

Length: Full Day

Cost: £135 Coventry, or, £145 Kenilworth, Leamington, Solihull, Rugby, Nuneaton.

What’s involved in the Gardening for Beginners Course?

This is a little more in depth than the half day course and is  an excellent starting point for someone who wants gardening lessons in the privacy of their own home. This basic gardening course will be delivered in the recipient’s home and we will use their garden as the classroom.  It is aimed at someone who considers themselves to be a gardening beginner, novice gardener or for example someone who has their first garden or even those who want to start gardening for the first time but don’t know what to do first or how to go about it.

We will look at the tools already bought (or inherited!) and see what are missing, explain which tools should be used for which job and how best to use them.   We will look at the reasons for composting, how to and what to compost, leaf mould what it is and how to do it, how to and why we ought to look after the soil, simple garden hygiene rules, an easy 12 months lawn care plan, regular seasonal tasks from pruning to dividing all of which will be tailored to their garden’s needs, pests and diseases, watering, basic pruning techniques.

Gardening for novices is delivered in a friendly and relaxed manner, no jargon is used (or if it is we’ll explain it!) and at the end the recipient will have gardening know how, will know which tasks they can get started on and feel more confident to get out there and take charge of their garden!
