Virtual Courses

Here, you’ll find a variety of online video courses that will help you get gardening and growing!

We’re thrilled to be working with Adam yn yr Ardd (Adam in the Garden) to create a series of weekly videos that will give you advice on a wide range of topics, from sowing seeds to creating a wild garden.

Protecting Our Plants

Gardening is such a rewarding activity that doesn’t need to harm nature.

In this video, Adam shows us how to protect our plants and crops from a variety of garden visitors, such as birds and insects, in a nature-friendly way, including a homemade organic spray, eggshells and wool.

Growing Salads: From Garden to Plate

Growing your own food can be so rewarding and salad leaves are some of the quickest and easiest crops to grow. You can avoid waste and save money by growing ‘cut-and-come-again’ crops – as you constantly cut immature leaves, more re-grow – giving you a constant supply during the season.

In this video, Adam shows you how to easily grow five different salad crops at home to enjoy over the summer.

How to Plan Your Garden

It can be difficult to know where to start when planning your garden, while maximising the space available.

In this video, Adam takes us through the simple steps of planning and designing a garden, as well as some important things to keep in mind.

Health Benefits of Gardening

Multiple studies have shown that gardening, walking, encounters with wildlife and interacting with nature can all have a positive impact on our mental and physical health and well-being.

In this video, Adam discusses how our gardens and outdoor spaces can become our sanctuaries and how best to enjoy them.

Transplanting Seedlings

Raising plants from seeds can be a rewarding and exciting way to add new varieties of plants to your garden.

After planting lavatera seeds a fortnight ago, Adam takes us through the steps of transplanting seedlings into larger containers in this video.

Garden Tools

Gardening is easier and a lot more fun when you have the right tools for the job! In this video, Adam takes you through the top five tools you need, as well as how to use them, to become a successful gardener.

How to Sow Seeds

Sowing and growing seeds is something exciting to enjoy doing in the garden!

Lavatera are easy to grow, have beautiful pink and white flowers and are great for pollinating insects, especially bees.
