About the course

Gardening doesn’t require huge amounts of space, time or money. Whether you have a small windowsill or a large allotment you can grow your own flowers and veg. At How to Basically we help you understand the basic principals of gardening and how easy it is to get started.
With an emphasis on sustainability and saving money we will show you how to grow your own plants, veg and flowers and to then collect seeds from these to begin the growing cycle again. We will demystify the sowing and growing process and demonstrate to you how simple it can be with whatever space you have.
Our course is run by the brilliant Julia Parker of Parkers Patch www.parkers-patch.com . It focuses on propagating and sowing your own seeds and then making mini plant pots out of newspaper or toilet rolls into which to plant them. We will show you how to grow plants from seed, the importance of nourishing your soil (and how to do it), nurturing your seedlings and how and when to harvest. Gardening is much more accessible than most people think and we are here to help as many of you get started as possible!

“I had tackled some plumbing jobs in the past but did not have a great deal of confidence until I attended the How To plumbing course. It was very well structured and Dave explained all of the basics and some more. It was a mixture of teaching and doing…I successfully plumbed in a kitchen sink!! ”

The lesson was the perfect balance between theory and practical and I really do feel more confident that when I get a drill in my hands, I can actually be useful!”
