Time to grow your own

Have your say

Fancy starting your own veggie patch but unsure you’ve got enough garden grow-how? A course to cultivate green gingers launches this weekend in Chesterfield.

Dobbies Garden World is launching a new series of in-store talks for novices. Garden Grow-How talks will take place every Saturday and Sunday, 11am to 2pm and will cover everything from how to grow vegetables in a window box to planting the perfect hanging basket. Sessions will end with a Gardener’s Question Time for customers to put their cultivating conundrums to the gardening gurus.

Creating a Herb Garden runs from this Saturday to next Sunday, The Veggie Patch runs April 7 until April 15 and a fruit-growing talk is planned for May.

Veg on a Ledge (April 21 to May 6) aims to show flat-dwellers how to grow their fruit and veg on a windowsill.
