Often even the most enthusiastic gardener is unsure when it comes to rose pruning. What rose have I got?  How should I prune it?

Your friends would be so delighted! And your roses get pruned too!

Composting, leaf mould and wormeries

Using a garden’s waste products to feed and nourish the soil makes sense, yet so few people do this. Why?

Usually it is not understanding how and when to do this. If you would rather not take your waste to the Tip, and then buy in compost or mulch, at great expense, from the Garden Centre, then invite me in to advise you and your friends on how, what and when to compost in your garden. See what a difference it can make!

As an Expert Horticulturists I am eager to encourage recycling in gardens. I’ll tell you all you need to know, and tailor it specifically to your garden. Your invited friends will take what they learn back to their own gardens. They’ll love you for it.

Maximum number of guests: any

Time Scale: 2 hours

Items you will need:  cardboard, newspaper, vegetable waste

Cost for 1 x Expert Horticulturist to conduct the Masterclass on Composting: £80.00
