Garden Classes - Book Now for Feb 2013

Places are running out for February Class!

Look at what Richard is picking from his garden.....
If you join his class; you too could have the same success with your own garden!

More and more people are discovering just how important local knowledge is when it comes to your garden at home. Sure; you can plunge yourself into those thick mind-boggling gardening books out there, OR you can enjoy learning along with other like-minded people as you go. 

Here's Richard in his garden
Hanging with the Cucurbits 

Maybe you'd like to learn how to propagate your own cuttings.....Here's Richard propagating the Perennial Basil in class. 

It's much cheaper to propagate your own plants if you can get hold of some cuttings...
maybe you're pruning a plant at home and would like to share it with your friends or family
then you need these classes!

You can learn all that and MORE!!

Maybe you would like to learn the difference between each lady beetle in your garden?

Good or Bad?
Look at the damage these little creatures have done to that zucchini leaf..............
...............................Do you know what they are?...(I've included a hint somewhere in this post)

Have you seen these in your garden before? 
If you live in the Illawarra; there's probably quite a few visiting your garden at the moment.

Just starting to nibble
You too can become a Practical Gardener, just like hundreds of others in the Illawarra area. All you need to do is sign up and attend a month-by-month garden class held by Richard Moran at the Wollongong Wholesale Nursery in Albion Park. There are limited spaces so you need to be quick.
The next four classes for February are to be held
9th February and 23rd February 2013  

Cost: $35 per class for 3.5 hrs of fun-while-you-learn; including a tea break to quench your thirst

Saturday 9th February 8.30am to 12 Noon and 12.30pm to 4pm

Sunday 23rd February 8.30am to 12 Noon and 12.30pm to 4pm

Bookings are essential by emailing Richard

Sharing your own produce, enjoying lots of free giveaways, swapping seeds, buying garden items at a reduced cost, and eating lovely fresh produce are just some of the many benefits you will encounter along  the way. 

Did I mention that on top of all your freebies, you get a 20% discount on most items on the day of your class?


An enormous thank-you goes out to Michael & Kylie Magill.
Allowing us to host the garden classes at the nursery and offering their support
has been a huge contribution in setting up the classes.


So....the question now is.....Have you booked in to start your classes?
