Grow Your Own – Sowing Vegetables Outdoors

Summary information

Our Grow Your Own programme is a series of nine short courses providing all the basic knowledge required to get growing at home. Our focus is growing vegetables whilst being mindful of nature.

This course is for those that want to learn how to directly sow seeds outdoors successfully. It covers how to prepare the soil prior to sowing, the right drill for the seed being sown and techniques used for seeds of different vegetables to ensure best success.

There is a classroom-based theory part to this course, as well as an outdoor practical section where you will be taken through the full process of sowing.

Please note: This course will involve outdoor demonstrations. Please come prepared for working in wet and cold weather. All tools and working gloves will be provided.

This is the second day in a series of two vegetable sowing courses. The first day (on Sunday 22nd March 2020) will focus on sowing vegetable seed under cover.

The course is suitable for anyone aged 16 or over. Please bring a packed lunch on the day. Hot drinks and biscuits will be provided.
