Unlock the secrets of sustainable gardening in this masterclass, "Sustainable Bounty - Growing Enough" where we explore 'what is enough'. Perfect for beginners or intermediate gardeners, this final session of our New Year, Greener Garden series, led by Karen Sutherland, will guide you in determining the right amount to grow for your family or how much you could realistically grow in the space you have.
Are you curious about how many seeds to sow or the normal yield of a zucchini plant? Wondering about the growth duration of cauliflower? Pondering the necessity of six cucumber plants? Or maybe you find yourself overplanting your small space and want to know what to plant and how many to have a healthy productive space. This masterclass is designed to answer some of these questions and guide you through the intricacies of planning crops and optimizing your food garden.
Our expert-led session will help you understand the quantity of seeds to plan your perfect crop, identify the must-have vegetables that are super producers, ensuring a bountiful supply to fill your family's dinner plates.
By the end of the session, you'll not only have a better understanding of "what is enough" but also be equipped with the knowledge that gardening isn't just about frequent trips to the nursery melting the credit card, it's about careful nurturing and mastering the basics and this doesn't have to cost a fortune.
Join us for the final instalment of the "New Year, Greener Garden" series, and embark on a journey towards a more sustainable and rewarding gardening experience.
