Grow your own at RHS Garden Rosemoor
24 September 2012
RHS Garden Rosemoor is offering 10 keen gardeners the chance to attend an informative and practical allotment course in 2013; gardeners will get the opportunity to tend their own plots in the picturesque setting of Rosemoor, receive expert RHS tuition along the way, and take away home-grown harvests.
The successful candidates will take part in the vegetable-growing course which runs throughout the whole growing season starting in February 2013 and continuing for nine months.
RHS Garden Rosemoor will supply applicants with all the tools for the jobs and relevant protective clothing for a small fee of £50. In addition, RHS experts will give two-hour allotment masterclasses on the first Wednesday of each month to give a solid grounding of managing a vegetable plot. Students will have access to their plots every Wednesday from 10.30am-4pm.
Peter Earl, Rosemoor’s Fruit and Veg expert and course leader says 'This is a brilliant opportunity for any individual looking to expand his or her gardening knowledge and be part of a community of like-minded people. The facilities are first class and combined with the expert input we are very excited to be able to extend this offer again to our local communities.'
