Beyond Introduction to Gardening - The Practicals
Tracy Browne - Operations Manager, Walworth Garden (new course)
Friday 6 15:00 - 18:00 & Saturday 7 10:00 - 17:00
With 30 years experience as a gardener, Tracy Browne, Operations Manager at Walworth Garden, is well placed to offer practical guidance on the things you need to know to garden successfully. She has been involved in the creation and maintenance of countless green sites and is the first port of call when it comes to growing food or flowers.
Her career began as a successful florist before realising that the incorporation of root care would mean a lengthier display of blooms. She has a keen eye for the plants that look good together and her knowledge of edibles and how to propagate is unsurpassed. On a daily basis, Tracy ensures that Walworth Garden is viewed at its very best to all visitors. Working behind the scenes in our greenhouses, dividing and seed sowing and then at the display end of the Charity, ensuring everything is in place for maximum effect.
Having successfully run the course 'Introduction to Gardening' for many years, she has led the very new gardener to the starting point and set them free to explore. “Tracy was amazing and informative. I learnt a huge amount!”
This new course is Tracy's long awaited opportunity to lead workshop attendees to the next level, negotiating the prizes and pitfalls that gardeners of all experiences face on a daily basis. Not to be missed.
