A workshop on Herbs and Edible Flowers – Saturday 20th May

Spice up your salads! This workshop will cover everything you need to know about growing your own tasty herbs and edible flowers to add flavour and vibrancy to meals. Filling our outdoor spaces with herbs and edible flowers adds welcome scent and colour for us and benefits our urban wildlife too.

Led by an RHS qualified horticultural tutor, the workshop provides lots of learning about how to grow herbs and edible flowers, plenty of information to take away and an opportunity to practice sowing seeds and taking cuttings.

Taking place in a lovely walled kitchen garden, this practical one-day workshop includes lots of planting ideas and some simple propagation techniques for you to try, so that you can take away a pot of your own herb cuttings. The cost is £38.

This course is at: Ecolocal, The Lodge, Honeywood walk, Carshalton SM5 3NX. Within the grounds of Carshalton Ecology Centre, by the ponds.
