Description

Is your lettuce and coriander running to seed? Do you have beans that flower but don’t fruit, or flowers falling off your citrus? Or do your plants seem to die no matter you do? If any of this sounds familiar, or if you're a complete novice, then this class will teach you how to avoid these issues. You'll learn how potting mix and watering work, how plants react to different situations, and how the weather affects different plants differently. There will be a practical demonstration showing how to properly prepare potting mix, plant seeds and seedlings, and maintain the potential fruits (and vegetables!) of your labour.

Presented by Diana Cotter

Diana trained in Amenity Horticulture in Britain over 25 years ago… back in the days when it was believed any garden problem could be answered with a chemical spray! She set up her own business designing, planting and maintaining gardens in London.

All this experience was brought to Australia 17 years ago, and much more has been learnt since. Diana has presented workshops for Sustainable Gardening Australia for several years and has recently joined BAAG as a garden consultant, specialising in sustainable design and advising on new approaches to gardening… all without the slightest hint of a spray!
