1st Thursday of the Month

 Thursday 1st 2023

10.30am to 2pm

€ 50

This half day workshop is designed for complete beginners[

The content of the workshop will coincide with the monthly garden jobs that needs to be done throughout the year in your garden.

Everything from general maintenance of plants and shrubs, mulching, pruning, planting seeds, potting on, vegetable garden, fruit garden, cut flowers, managing weeds, pests and disease, propagating, Tips on garden maintenance. 

it will be a practical workshop and a super prompt to yourself to help you keep on track of what needs to be done throughout the year from Feb through to June

You will see first hand how the garden changes through the months from planting our annual flower seeds  in March to using those fully grown flowers for floral arrangements.  

The workshop will entail some classroom activity in the renovated stable while the remainder  will be carrying out some tasks in the Walled Garden.

It will be a very sociable few hours where practical content will be covered and useful tips and ideas shared. 

I would like to emphasise that I will be taking this workshop and it is a personal gardening journey. I do not have all the answers. But what I do hope to impart is that you don't need to know everything to start and have a great garden and most of what we learn is from 'doing' and making mistakes. Sometimes the over whelming amount of information and terminology can be off putting. These half day workshops will be a nice blend of theory and practical leaning.

I have developed the Walled Garden here in Coolamber over the past 4 years which now includes an annual and perennial flower garden, vegetable and herb garden, fruit and berry garden, perennial veg, wildflower area, orchard and Nuttery.  Last year I completed the design layout of the Glass house, the potting Shed and the Gardeners Cottage. All of which will continue to evolve this year.

A light lunch followed by tea and cake will also be provided in the dining room of Coolamber house.

This workshop is most suitable for complete beginners and I look forward to having you join me on this journey.

At the end of every Monthly session you will leave motivated and more knowledgable.  A Booklet which contains relevant content to help you stay on track  will be provided. Everyone will also receive a useful gift every month to take home.

Look forward to having you join me in 2023.
