Welcome to Parker’s Patch

Grow Your Own Courses, Top Tips, Lifestyle And More….

Hi, I’m Julia and am passionate about growing fruit and vegetables.  I run informal courses from my home on the East/West Sussex borders where I share all my knowledge from seed sowing to when and how to harvest.  From beginner to the more experienced gardener I will help you understand how to sow different seeds and when to do so, sharing my shortcuts and top tips for a  successful harvest year round.  I write an article, Veg On The Ledge, for Leon Restaurants and I publish a monthly newsletter ‘ Jobs for The Month Of…..  I advise clients on how to create, renovate and care for their vegetable gardens and teach them how to maintain a successful harvest throughout the year.


I am working on an exciting book project due for publication later this summer with Ghillie James, a food writer, we have put our knowledge together in a children’s book where we hope to educate children about nature and the environment though fun activities and recipes. Our book is a collection of small space gardening projects, recipes and activities for busy parents and children. It aims to encourage children to leave their screens alone and go outside to have fun.

I also run a bed and breakfast business, The Barn, it is situated next to our paddock away from the main house with stunning views towards the south downs. If you wish to book The Barn and combine it with one of my courses, please email me info@parkers-patch.com
