Sunday 28th March: 5pm - 7pm
In this two-hour online workshop we're going to have some fun planning our garden space to grow the most flowers we possibly can to give away in the space we already have.
Whether you have an acre of land or just a couple of metres, we'll make sure to design something that works for you.
(I can't promise by the end, you won't want to create more space to grow though!)
Now, I'm no gardening guru by any means (!), let me be crystal clear about that. But I wanted to have an opportunity to share what's working for me in my garden right now, and what I've learned so I have even more flowers in the future. And if that helps you have more flowers to give - then I'm a happy lady :)
During this online workshop:
- I'll share with you the step-by-step planning process I use in my own garden - it's evolved over the past few months to ensure that my beds will (hopefully) never be empty again!
- We'll get out our tape-measures, pens and paper and create our plans together right there on the call
- You'll leave with a beautiful, printable, simple guide for how much spacing you need for each plant, broken into annuals, hardy annuals and biennials, bulbs and tubers so you'll always have a quick-reference for future planning.
- And hopefully a whole bunch of new friends :)
And I'll do my best to make sure we have plenty of time for questions on the call too.
The workshop will be held using Zoom so no need to travel - full instructions will be sent once you register.
What do you need to bring? Pencil, rubber, ruler, paper, tape-measure and a cup of tea :)
If you can't make the call live, it will be recorded and sent to all of you that register.
I'd love to get to 'meet' you and put a name to a face so I hope to see you there.
I really enjoyed the workshop. It was fun meeting like minded people and feeling the support of being part of a group. I also learned a lot about how to start planning my plot and how and where to plant. I think it gave me focus and although things may change as I go along, I'm working to my plan. A really fun session. - Rachel
"Attending the workshop was so worthwhile - especially for planning purposes (ie how much space to allow for each plant). Lots of useful things discussed during the session and so much information gained. I loved how interactive it was at times. Highly recommend. 😀" - Christine
"The workshop was fantastic. I gained lots of information from Nicola Bird and also got to chat with like-minded people starting out on the project" - Tamara
"As a complete beginner I was a little apprehensive at signing up for this workshop. I need not have worried, Nicola explained everything very easily & I found it all very informative & interesting. I now understand how I’m going to plan my plot, how much to allow for each plant & so much more. A fabulous evening spent laughing & learning. xxx" - Gill
"I was really concerned as I'm no 'gardener' but love watching seeds grow..it was a great evening i met some lovely ladies with good ideas! Am so looking forward to hopefully having lots of flowers later next year. Thanks Nicola Bird I enjoyed it and learnt lots x" - Sian

"I had planned my garden several times over in my head and in discussions but the value of this course is sitting down and actually planning it, on paper. The information and sharing of ideas helped to confirm my plans into a real, doable challenge and launched my garden dream project into the world of reality. Great fun too." - Norah
