GO2 Newsletter

We aim to bring you weekly newsletters with useful information, so if we have nothing to tell you about on some weeks then there will be no newsletter.  If you have anything you’d like to submit, please send it to newsletter@grow-our-own.co.uk

Training

Our first GO2 training session of 2014 will be on Sunday, February 9th from 11.00 – 12.00.

Mahesh will show us how to tackle the essential task of pruning.  This will be a practical session so if you have any favourite secateurs that you would like to bring, please do.  Gooseberry bushes and raspberry canes are top of the list.  Also, if you would like to plant autumn fruiting raspberries and gooseberries, we will be offering plants and advice.

Included in the session will be a short introduction to some of the really useful resources on the website.  You may not be aware that it includes all the growing guides by plant and by plot, plus recipes and other goodies.  Take a look now at www.grow-our-own.co.uk
