Lawn lovers will enjoy the lawn care class on 23rd of August. September is one of the best months to sow a lawn so if you are thinking of giving yours a revamp you can get advice on lawn care, grass seeds, feeding and weeds.


Everyone loves a vibrant and colourful spring garden! The next talk on 30th of August is an A-Z of everything you ever wanted to know about planting for early spring colour.

The final class on 6th September is perfect for those who wish to grow their own!  Learn about getting your garden ready, starting from seed, caring for your garden, crops for a speedy harvest and vegetables that will survive a frost.
