We are working alongside Trellis, who promote health and wellbeing via horticulture, to host two webinars as we move into autumn and winter. The webinars will demonstrate straightforward gardening activities that can be undertaken indoors, to help people experiencing care to reap the benefits of gardening. The webinars are open to all and are suitable for people with no gardening knowledge. Please join us and have a go!

Grow your own autumn/winter container

Tuesday 11 October, 10:30 - 11:45

Continuing with our programme of patio and tabletop growing sessions, we will share a practical demonstration of how to continue engaging with the outdoors from indoors.  Learn how to plant up a winter interest container using plants that will generate colourful and shapely interest during the colder months, whilst anticipating the arrival of secretly layered spring bulbs. Plant up one large pot to greet visitors at the door or make several mini ones to give as gifts. During the session, we will cover how to:

  • plan, engage and inspire people to join in the activity
  • learn how to plant a selection of spring flowering bulbs and seasonal plants
  • make a simple ‘bulb lasagne’ for outdoor decoration or giving as a gift.

Grow your own jingle bulbs and Christmas table decoration

Tuesday 15 November, 10:30 - 11:45

Would you like to engage with the outdoors during the colder winter months? Learn how to grow indoor flowering bulbs and also create a simple arrangement to decorate the festive table.  This simple yet inspiring tabletop demonstration session will cover how to:

  • plan, engage and inspire people to join in the activity
  • pot up a selection of indoor prepared bulbs, which flower indoors in winter
  • create an easy to make table decoration from foliage and flowers - extending physical, cognitive, and social activity.
