Objectives

 

To learn by instruction, demonstration, participation and practice the varied methods of growing Sweet Pea seedlings.

 

Intention

 

The five Workshops will operate as a continuous programme from seed sowing to final planting. Participants will be charged a fee of £10.00 for the full programme. Full attendance at all the sessions is recommended but not compulsory.

 

Attendees may bring their own seeds or purchase from the full range available from me. Compost, seed trays and labels will be provided. At the end of each session the seeds/seedlings can be taken home to be cared for and returned at the next session. Alternatively they can be left in my care at Fern Bank until the end of the programme.

 

In addition to your own seeds we will propagate some seeds on behalf of the Society for sale at later events. This will give you more practice. The timing of the Workshops is designed to produce plants that will start to flower at the beginning of July (this will slightly vary depending on the timing of the seasons). If earlier flowers are required they would have had to be sown in the autumn. An average length of flowering period is 8 weeks. If later flowering times are required, seeds may be sown up to early April using the same methods as the Workshops will illustrate.

 

If you have any queries regarding the above please contact Carole Tate (caroletate10@gmail.com)

                       

Best wishes for the new growing season. I look forward to seeing you at one or more of our events.
