Our popular "Learn with Joe" free planting advice sessions are back!

We’re very excited that our plant expert, Joe will be running six free planting advice sessions during 2020.

The first event takes place on Saturday, 7th March, Joe will be sharing his hints, tips and advice for planting up spring containers and baskets.

The free demonstrations will take place in the outdoor plant canopy between 11am and 3pm and everyone is welcome to ‘drop in’ at a time to suit you.

Our Head of Marketing, Jo Dales said: “We have a wealth of knowledge in our plant team and Joe’s planting sessions are always so popular, so we’ve added more dates to this year’s calendar. In his first demo, Joe will create colourful spring containers using primroses that are locally-grown in Huddersfield, exclusively for us, and planted with pansies, violas, ivy and bellis for a welcome pop of spring colour.

“We’re looking forward to inspiring people to create an early splash of colour in their gardens and there’ll be a printed guide with Joe’s hints and tips available to take away after the demonstration.”

Make a date in your diary for the next Learn with Joe advice sessions - planting vegetables and herbs on Saturday, 21st March and planting alpines on 4th April, with more taking place in May and June.
