Planning Your Vegetable Garden
Chris Baker, MI Hort, Head Gardener at Kiplin Hall since 2010, will be running this interesting workshop to help gardeners get the best from their vegetable garden, including how to start from scratch.
The workshop will be held in the Hall and participants will have an opportunity to look around the Walled Garden to see how the garden produce area is being developed at Kiplin.
Until 2010, the Walled Garden was laid to grass, but during the last three years, Chris and his team of volunteers have re-laid the paths, restored the dipping pool and brought the garden back to productivity. Fruit trees, soft fruits, varieties of rhubarb, potatoes, asparagus and an abundance of other vegetables are now grown for use in the Hall's Tea Room and for sale on the Walled Garden Produce Cart. An area of the Walled Garden has also been designated as a cut flower garden. Cultivation of further areas of the garden are planned for this year.
This workshop is a great opportunity to learn how to grow your own, taking advantage of Chris's years of gardening experience, including making a garden from the start. Topics covered will include soil testing, planning your vegetable garden, planting for maximum efficiency and yield and when and how to plant.
The workshop is limited to 25 places.
Tickets are £15 per person.
Coffee provided, but please bring a packed lunch.
To book please telephone 01748 818178 or email email@example.com
