This online session introduces learners to growing fruit and vegetables. Detailing how to select a perfect site, plan and optimise harvest from the fruit and vegetable plot, learners will gain detailed instruction on growing a variety of vegetables from seed sowing through to harvest. Information regarding the cultivation of top fruit and soft fruit will enable you to be confident in cultivation for the coming season.
Sessions can be attended singly or as the complete series and no previous experience is needed. We will cover the principles of essential horticultural topics, as well as the science that underpins these principles, with learning consolidated through online quizzes and group discussions.
