If any of you are looking for something a bit more relaxing and your thoughts are turning to outdoors and the garden, Suntrap is running a couple of short gardening courses. They’re very informative and good fun, just phone the college and sign up.
Saturday morning courses run from 10 am to 12 Noon at only £6 plus materials. On Saturday 12 April, you can learn all about Bonsai’s, run by the Scottish Bonsai Association, and you’ll come away with your own bonsai. You can make your own Summer hanging basket or container on the 24th of May.
Alternatively, you might be interested in two evening classes:
A How to Design your Garden course starts on Wednesday 16 April – 2 July for 13 weeks and costs £95.00. – great if you’ve got either a brand new garden with nothing in it or an area that you want to do something with and you don’t know how to get started.
Amateur Gardening – which is the one I started with many years ago – runs on a Thursday evening from 7.00 – 9.00 pm from the 24 April – 26 June and costs £75.00 plus materials.
You can take part in as many of the courses as you like.
