SOW, GROW & HARVEST

GARDEN WITH ME...

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 also 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.

WORKSHOPS

This is where I host my workshops, The School House, once the village school and before that an ecclesiastical chapel. Workshops are informal, instructive and hands on where you can learn how to sow and grow in a sustainable way. Groups are kept small adding a personal feel.

THE LITTLE GROWER'S COOKBOOK

I have written and published The Little Grower’s Cookbook, with Ghillie James, a food writer, the foreword is by Olivia Colman.  We have put our knowledge together in a children’s book where we hope to educate children and adults alike about nature and the environment through fun activities and recipes. Our book is a collection of small space sustainable 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. Click below for more information and how to buy it. It is also available on Amazon, Waterstones and most good book retailers.

MY WORK WITH ALITEX AT CHELSEA FLOWER SHOW

A dream came true when Alitex asked me to style one of two greenhouses on their show stand at The RHS Chelsea Flower Show in September 2021, it was the first time the show has been held in the autumn. The Scotney greenhouse is part of the National Trust range and I had fun filling it with all my sustainable growing ideas. From an edible pineapple to a home grown birdhouse and luffa, newspaper pots, seedlings, sticks and plenty more eco friendly growing ideas. Old seed packets became bunting and old tins overflowed with Basil. The stand won 5 gold stars.
