RHS Garden Rosemoor is looking for 10 keen gardeners to take part in thier next allotment course.

The course starts in February next year and includes expert RHS tuition, your own plot to tend, and take away, home-grown harvests.

There will also be weekly access to plots at the Torrington gardens and regular allotment master-classes.

Pete Adams, course leader at RHS Rosemoor, said: “Our allotment course has grown from strength to strength over the past four years, and once again we are excited to welcome new novice vegetable growers to join us to learn from our expert team.

“We offer brilliant facilities, all the equipment and the know-how for a successful year of vegetable growing. So why not apply to join us for the 2019 course?”

The course, which attracts a small fee (to cover safety boots and a contribution towards materials) is open to everyone.

Applications close 26 November 2018. To apply, please write to Curator Jon Webster with a brief personal background stating why you would like a beginners vegetable plot at Rosemoor and indicating what you will do with your new knowledge and letting us know how or where you found out about the course by post: Jon Webster, RHS Garden Rosemoor, Great Torrington Devon EX38 8PH or by email to: jonathanwebster@rhs.org.uk.
