Grow Your Own: Soft Fruit in Your Garden

Posted on 26th April 2018 by Rosanna Zywietz

Saturday 28th April, 10.30am  – 12.30pm
 
Ravenscraig Walled Garden

Learn all there is to know about growing your own soft fruit. It’s easy to grow delicious, soft fruit & you don’t need lots of space. You can grow strawberries, raspberries, black currants, gooseberries and more at home.

We’ll look at a selection of fruit bushes, plants and trees and discuss where, when and how to plant, prune and care for your fruit so that you can get a healthy crop year after year. We will be indoors for part of the workshop and outdoors doing some practical tasks.

This workshop will be led by expert fruit grower Andrew Lear, also know as Appletreeman. Andrew advises on the best fruit to grow in the Scottish climate to a range of growers all over the country. More details on his website.

The workshop is suitable for beginners and those who would like to learn a bit more about growing their own soft fruit. No equipment is needed but you might want to bring your own gardening gloves. Please dress according to the weather and wear shoes suitable for being outdoors.
You do not have to have attended previous workshops to come on to this one.
