Beyond Gardens GardenWise Seminar

When: 6:30 PM, Thursday 1 December to 9:30 PM, Thursday 1 December

Where: 244 Vincent Street, Leederville, WA, 6007

Join us for a FREE GardenWise Seminar with the Beyond Gardens Team!

This special series of seminars proudly supported by the Water Corporation will feature waterwise gardening practices that are suited to WA's unique combination of soils and climatic conditions.

The Beyond Gardens Team will highlight unsustainable gardening practices and dispel many gardening myths, replacing them with practical techniques that result in success at a fraction of the current cost and use of resources.

What will this workshop include?

Good for beginers and experienced gardeners alike, the seminar will cover a range of topics including:

  • Environmental consequences of current gardening practices
  • How plants grow - you will be surprised how many current practices are out of sync with the way plants grow
  • Understanding and improving your local soils - find out how digging can be counter productive
  • Nutrients - what plants actually need
  • Recycling for a healthier garden - the real story about composting, worm farms and the rest
  • Mulching - not all mulches work, find out which ones actually save water
  • Choosing the right plants for your garden - why some are better than others
  • Garden design - tips from the experts
  • WaterWise ways for WA - ways to use a fraction of the water
  • Irrigation - which systems are best, some waste over 60% while others are 95% efficient (and are the cheapest on the market!)
  • Garden myths and why gardening in WA is different to what's shown on tv
  • Questions and answers...

Light refreshments will be served at half time.
