About the event

Description of the Workshop

These days many of us find ourselves having to cut back on luxuries. Gardening and getting new plants does not have to be one of these. This workshop aims to remove the mystery from propagation and show you how to make plants for free. We will be looking at the why, how and when of propagation. We will cover 4 main methods:

• sowing seed

• plant division

• cuttings (soft wood, hard wood and root)

• layering

The course aims to be as practical as possible, making full use of the lovely Langdon garden. My aim is for you to go home with a pot of planted seeds, a piece of divided plant and at least one cutting. If you have secateurs, it would be useful if you could bring them along. All other equipment etc will be provided. Questions will be very welcome.

Timing and Lunch

The workshop runs from 10am until 4pm.  A vegetarian lunch of mixed salads and bread from local caterer Wasted Kitchen is included in the price. Please contact us by email if you would like your meal to be vegan, gluten-free or any other dietary requirements. 

Workshop Facilitator - Gail Rowlands

My name is Gail. After teaching for 30+years I decided to follow my dream and garden. Over the years I have developed several gardens all on the Begged, Borrowed and Stolen method!! I am passionate about working with and for nature. I am also passionate about sharing gardening knowledge with others and demystifying as much of horticulture as I can. Since 2019 I have had the joy of developing the garden at Langdon using all the methods mentioned above.
