Sow biennial seed now and have a blaze of colour for next spring and early summer.
What are biennials? Why should you sow them?
In this demo, Georgie Newbery will show you how she chooses varieties, and sows seed for maximum success with germination. She’ll show you how she pricks out seed when the seedlings are big enough, and she’ll encourage you to plan ahead so that you’ll have good sized plants to pop in the ground in the autumn, which will give you lots of scent and colour in the spring and early summer next year.
Georgie always says that sowing biennials means you steal a march on the following year.
People often find seed sowing surprisingly stressful, struggling to choose the right compost, the right seed, struggling to know how much to sow, how to water, how to prevent seeds from damping off. Georgie will encourage you to slow down, take a deep breath, sow what you need, and be brave looking after your seedlings.
Sowing biennials is a declaration of faith in the future – surely a great thing to do now.
The demo will take place via Zoom at 5.00 pm (GMT) and last around an hour, with some time for Q&A at the end. We will send you the link to the Zoom meeting a couple of days before the session takes place (contact us if you’ve not received this information 48 hours before the session, but check your junk mail first as the emails can sometimes end up in there.)
We will then send out a recording of the demo a few days after the session - which also means you can enjoy this demo, even if you're not available at 5pm on the evening of the demo! Please note that, unlike our longer online workshops, we will not send out notes following this session.
We will be in touch a few days before the workshop with your joining instructions. If you’ve not received this email 48 hours beforehand please email@example.com do please first check your junk / spam items and make sure you are checking the inbox of the email address you used to book your place.
We will send recordings (and notes if applicable) of workshops within 7 days of the session taking place, but usually much sooner than this.
