Organic Seed Business
Growing Herbs
We are now able to offer Zoom presentation talks. If you are a member of a club that normally meets up once a month and has a visiting speaker, this might be an alternative for your group. Members can stay in their own homes and have the Zoom talk on a particular evening, arranged by the Club secretary.
If you would like us to talk to your Gardening Club or Horticultural Society, please contact us by email
