Plant Support Workshop

unnamed 2

Come along to Seedy Saturday at Lewes Town Hall, Saturday 1st February 2020. I’ll be there teaching how to make willow obelisks/supports for your climbing plants (pictured far left). I’m running two sessions, the first starts at 10am and the second starts at 1pm. Maximum of 4 in a group, £40/person. Its a lively event to visit perfect for keen gardeners with unusual plants and seeds and related products and projects.

Fun in the Sun

Had a great day at the ‘Cranbrook Goes Nuts in May’ event this May bank holiday. Taught some brave students a ‘fitching’ weave, using bundles of brown willow around a hazel frame to create these hard-wearing, strong plant supports, which should last for years despite their rustic appearance!

A couple more willow workshops in the pipeline for August… watch this space…
