Gardening courses

Posted: Today at 21:24

I've posted this link on another work themed thread today:  http://www.southstaffs.ac.uk/courses/horticulture/

I attended a course here, purely recreational as my chosen career took me elsewhere.....maybe there is something similar in your area.

Good luck!

Lovely taste of spring, Forester.

 I thought the colour combination of these flowers were quite nice.

Hanging basket sweet peas were mentioned a little while ago, so I thought I would post this to give the general idea.

This is of a 14in basket, taken about March last year.

What do you do or what did you do at work

Hi, Jayne, I really hope you achieve your ambition.

I don't know where you live, so therefore can't recommend anything locally for you.

But I did a course (purely recreationally) at this college http://www.southstaffs.ac.uk/courses/horticulture/   perhaps you have something similar in your area.

I'll cut them mercilessly then to be on the safe side.

 

They're an excellent plant to harvest seed from, Owen.....just remember to let a couple of heads run to seed and you'll have enough seed to plant your neighbourhood.

Apols, Forester....didn't spot your 'They seed themselves about too' comment before I posted the above.

Just a point for those growing them in the open ground, they self-seed like wildfire.

Nice, John....similar to one I have, named 'Ice Blue'.

Ommthree.....and a jolly fine old fashioned flower they are too! Normally I cut mine by about half of their height when they are starting to open.

Btw, Sweet Williams are related to Pinks......so named because their petals seem to have been trimmed with pinking shears.
