I present a variety of talks to societies in Kent and East Sussex, topics include:

‘Produce from the garden’ an inspiring talk about making the most of your garden, harvesting flowers, food and craft. Depending upon the time of year I can offer a garden craft activity for everyone to partake in and take home, for example, simple willow weaving.

‘Create your own cutting garden’ I believe a vase of garden flowers on my kitchen table is as important in life as a pretty picture on my wall. Bringing the garden inside is an instant joy, creating a cutting garden, whatever the size of your plot, can provide you with blooms for the majority of the year. This talk takes you through the process of creating a cutting garden/border, the best plants to grow and how to pick and arrange the flowers for your home.

‘Christmas decorations from your garden’ decorating my family‚Äôs home for Christmas is a highlight of my year; I love to create beautiful decorations and wreaths using foliage from my garden. This talk gives you lots of festive project ideas and helps you to make the most of your garden’s produce even in deep dark winter. I can provide a Christmas Craft activity such as making a table decoration that everyone can take home at the end of the talk.

Prices for talks vary depending whether a garden craft activity is included.
