Hints & Tips
The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) has made no secret of its desire to get more Britons growing their own vegetables.
But the foundation has now stepped up its efforts and is offering ten gardeners the chance to attend courses that will see them learn from experts how to properly tend to an allotment – all in the scenic setting of Rosemoor garden.
Successful candidates will take part in a veggie growing course that will start in February 2014 and continue for nine months – when the green-fingered enthusiasts will have the chance to finally reap their harvest.
Applicants will be given all the tools they need for the job and it will only cost a £50 fee.
Students will have access to their plots every Wednesday between 10:30 and 16:00.
Peter Earl, RHS Rosemoor's fruit and vegetable expert, commented: "This is a brilliant opportunity for any individual looking to expand his or her gardening knowledge and be part of a community of like-minded people."
