Time to stop buying bags of fresh herbs from the supermarket and start growing your own!
Growing herbs is easy and rewarding and you don’t even need a garden to do it! A windowsill, a doorstep, anywhere you can perch a pot or two will allow you to grow tasty and nutritious herbs that will transform even the most basic of dishes (two eggs suddenly becomes omelette aux fines herbes).
This half day workshop will be a gentle introduction to herbs –what and how to grow, ranging from the common parsley through to more unusual flavours, with plenty of opportunities to sniff and taste the variety of herbs available. There will be a bit of practical too, as you get to sow a few seeds yourself to take home with you. Price includes handout and all materials.

“Sarah, your warm and encouraging open manner made the day a huge delight”
Sarah was the manager of award-winning garden centre, The Secret Garden in North Cork from 2002 until 2016, when she then decided to focus all her attention on her passion – the growing and arranging of flowers. A wedding florist since 2010, Sarah was frustrated by the lack of seasonal and Irish-grown flowers so year after year increased the volume and diversity of her own home-grown seasonal cut flowers, experimenting with different varieties of flowers and herbs, all for cutting. As an organic gardener, she shares her vegetable patch with all kinds of wildlife (not all of it welcome!) and takes pride in being able to offer chemical free beautiful blooms that she, her customers and wildlife can all enjoy.
