How to make practical and stylish use of contemporary spaces.
"I distinctly remember at about 9 sowing my first packet of seeds. It was only cornflowers. But the excitement I felt when I saw them grow and flower… I couldn’t get over the fact that something that beautiful had come from a packet of seeds that cost 20p from Asda. That, to me, was amazing. And it still is."
There have been too many stereotypes about gardens and gardeners. A windowsill can be a garden. You don’t need a 200ft garden. However you look at it, if you’re planting something outside your window, that is gardening. We can complicate gardening too much – young people are simplifying it, and stripping it back.
This course is for the contemporary gardener. You can be anywhere in the world, and no space is too small. I will take you through some of the latest trends and ideas to make your space both practical and contemporary looking. We cover both inside and outside. We’ll talk about how to maintain it, as well as how to plant for food and beauty. This course is peppered with real examples of turning small spaces into contemporary green areas to love, nurture and to show off to your friends.
