Trevallan’s Rose Workshop

It is the time you have wasted for your rose that makes your rose so important.”    ― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

 
Roses we all adore the flowers yet sometimes we put them in the too hard to grow category … they seem to get a bit of a bad rap here in South East Queensland. I know myself I am not an avid lover of the rose bush. They just seem like too much trouble.
 
This is the workshop that will make rose growing seem easy and fun!! The workshop that will make appreciate the thorn bush for the rose!
 
The workshop is designed for all rose lovers, growers and hopeful growers. We will be focussing on the varieties of roses grown, conditions for growing roses well, soil conditions, planting and pruning. Plus Seasonal Care for Roses – fertilising and managing pests and diseases and even Growing Roses in Pots.
 
We will showcase some great products from Searles Garden Products, eco-organic garden and Plant of Health Eco Friendly Fertilisers.
 
Our resident Horticultural expert – The Mountain Man has over 30 years experience being the grandson and son of rose growers. He has been involved in commercial rose growing for the nursery and cut flower industry, managed them in clients landscapes and of course grown them for himself over the years. His love of roses was the stepping stone to his career in horticulture.

Vegetable Garden Workshop

Do you want a pretty and productive garden this spring? Have little space or a whole yard? Want to have an edible garden but have no idea how to achieve it? Maybe you’ve tried to ‘grow your own’ before and not grown much only disappointment.

This is the workshop is for you.

The Mountain Man, who was the Head Gardener of the Brookfield Kitchen Gardens, will take us through the steps to set up (or revitalise) our very own Kitchen Gardens.  

I believe that a productive garden can work in any type of landscape or garden and the best way to achieve this is to utilise the principles of the Potager garden. The idea of a Potager garden basically combines the utilitarian nature of the English kitchen garden with the style and grace of French fashion. It is basically an ornamental vegetable garden. Plants are chosen for both their edible and ornamental natures and are put together in such a way that it looks pretty while still providing food.

The Mountain Man will start from how to build the soil right through to what to plant and how to care for our productive garden. He will also discuss and help us solve some common gardening problems/insects that can affect our gardens.

It doesn’t matter if you have never had a productive garden or if you have been gardening for years. There is sure to be something that everyone can take home and apply.

Trevallan is excited to introduce The Mountain Man will be taking us through all the basics of revitalisation our gardens ready for Spring. He will be telling us all the gardening jobs that need doing, how to do them and what products to use to bring your garden back to life. 

Just like us, our gardens need a ‘get ready for summer workout’ as we come out of winter. The Mountain Man will be going over some of the big stuff that needs doing – lawns, shrubs, what’s nice as bedding plants, pruning, soil rejuvenation, mulches (what to use and how). Just all of the jobs to help us get ready for Spring
