Event Description

5 Secrets to Successful Plants from Seed

When you grow from seed you have   such a wonderful choice of heirloom and unusual vegies, flowers and herbs.   Why stick to the hybrid seedlings from Bunnings or the same old boring   vegies? Why not grow a fantastical range of things from seed and tempt your family   with stripey tomatoes, candy-striped beetroot, or passionately purple   peppers? Aha- so you find growing from seed difficult? They don’t grow or   look decidedly sick?

Come along to find the wonderfully   simple ways to succeed with vegies from seed. You’ll take 3 varieties of   heirloom vegies home with you to grow in pots or in the ground. You’ll learn   how to make your seeds grow bigger and better than the ones you buy in the   shops AND at a fraction of the cost. Plus, you’ll learn how to collect & save   seed so your next harvest is free!

Cost: $65

 

Limited to 6 participants.

Hello Linda,

I would love to attend. It will just be me, not Andrew as well.  Looking forward to learning more about seeds. I am almost up to running a workshop myself, but a refresher from you would be fantastic at this stage.
