News Release Somerset Master Gardeners
The Master Gardener project is helping people in Somerset to grow their own. This is a community scheme involving experienced gardeners offering help and advice to individual households. They are helping people to realise that it is possible to ‘grow your own’ even if it is only a tray on a window sill. The scheme has already been very successful in the Midlands and London and after an initial training weekend with the ‘Incredible Edible Somerset’ Master Gardeners are offering help and advice in Somerset.
Master Gardeners Gail Coleshill and Rachel Shirley were at the Green Bazaar in Ilminster on Saturday to demonstrate how to grow beans and carrots in pots, peas in trays for salads and giving away other plants.
Gail Coleshill from Crewkerne said
“The Green Bazaar gave us an opportunity to meet many more people to help to ‘grow their own’ and it was great to meet other gardeners to exchange tips and information.
