Get growing with us! Learn the art of allotmenteering on your very own plot at RHS Garden Rosemoor
Every year, RHS Garden Rosemoor searches for 10 keen gardeners to join its practical and informative Allotment Course.
Successful candidates will receive expert RHS tuition, have their own plot to tend, and take away home-grown harvests. They will receive regular allotment master classes and weekly access to their plots, all in the picturesque setting of the RHS’ Devon garden.
‘Our allotment course has grown from strength to strength, and once again we are excited to welcome new novice vegetable growers to join us to learn from our expert team.
'We offer brilliant facilities, all the equipment and know-how for a successful year of vegetable growing,' says course leader Pete Adams.
Applications are welcome from people of all backgrounds and age groups - all you need is a passion to learn the basic principles of growing your own vegetables.
The cost of the course is a very low £50 which covers the cost of the gardening boots and seeds. Students will have access to their plots every Wednesday (10.30am–4pm) and attend two-hour tutorials at the start of each month.
To apply, please write to Curator Jon Webster with a brief personal background (approx 50 words), stating why you would like a beginners vegetable plot at Rosemoor (approx 50 words), and indicating what you will do with your new knowledge (approx 100 words).

Applications for places in 2021 are open until 27 November 2020 for a February 2021 course start. However, as the course was postponed in 2020, these candidates will move to 2021, a few spaces may be available.
