SOLD OUT Growing More and Better Vegetables


August 1 at 10:00 - 12:30

Cost: £

This is a more advanced course, aimed at people who have already been on the beginners course or who are more experienced vegetable gardeners. This session will look at vegetable growing in more detail. As well as covering in detail techniques for growing particular crops it will look at  more unusual crops and growing for harvest all through the year.

Subjects covered include:

  • the varieties of vegetables to grow
  • when to plant different seeds and succession planting
  • How to grow different vegetables
  • preparing the soil and composting
  • pest and weed control.

We’re delighted that Tony Chalcraft will be joining us again in 2020.

Using organic methods, Tony has grown just about every type of fruit and vegetable that can be grown in the North of England. He specialises in having fresh produce all through the year, mainly grown outside, but also using greenhouses and a polytunnel. It is this expertise that make his courses here so popular.

All workshops will mainly be held indoors, but you will get an opportunity to see the vegetable garden here at Stillingfleet Lodge as a reference point.

“What a great morning listening to Tony and Jane share their vast knowledge about veg growing. I loved their approach in a relaxed, friendly and so informative way. I have dabbled at veg growing for years so not quite a novice but I learnt so much. Great venue, well organised and booked on 3 more, thank you”

All courses include entry to the garden plus welcome coffee and biscuits. Unless stated,  materials are provided and you will leave each workshop with plenty of reference information.

Please note that workshop fees cannot be refunded if cancelled less than 7 days prior to date of workshop.
