If we are lucky enough to have a garden, it is a haven for us to relax in - more so than ever at the moment. The beauty of nature continues to amaze and inspire us here at Sophie Allport and we are really excited to team up with our lovely friends at Sarah Raven to give you the chance to win a green-fingered prize worth over £600.
You could win two places on Sarah’s best-known gardening course, 'Grow Your Own Cut Flowers' at one of the carefully selected, beautiful venues around the countryside where Sarah runs these courses.
Sarah has published her own books and written for a number of publications including the Saturday Telegraph, Gardens Illustrated and The English Garden and has also presented on BBCs Gardeners World. She has been running her popular courses for over 20 years. You can read our interview with Sarah on our blog HERE.
THE COURSE - GROW YOUR OWN CUT FLOWERS:
Sarah will give you hard facts on how to succeed with growing the very best and most productive plants for at least nine months of the year, combined with the best cut-and-come-again variety inspiration. In the morning, she'll cover all the theory. In the afternoon, she will give you practical advice on seed sowing and propagation, soil conditioning, mulching, staking and all the most important things we have found to help us succeed with nine month round flower production.
This course is ideal for those who have been thinking about creating an intensive cutting patch, or just growing a few flowers in their garden for the house. It is Sarah's classic course updated with all she's learned about growing cut flowers over 25 years. In the afternoon, the gardeners will show you round and teach you how to propagate, stake and support your plants with woven baskets.
The prize is for two people to take in spring 2021 and includes an overnight stay with bed and breakfast local to the course venue, two places on the course and a delicious two course lunch using recipes from Sarah’s cookbooks. The lucky winner will also receive £150 to spend at Sarah Raven and £100 to spend with Sophie Allport. Simply enter HERE.
