My Garden School



Come learn with me at My Garden School!

I teach the Advanced Veg Growing and Self-Sufficiency course at MGS, a wide-ranging course all about every aspect of growing your own food.

I’ve been growing my own food for over 20 years and writing about it for the last 10 in national magazines including The Garden, BBC Gardeners’ World Magazine and Grow Your Own. In this course I share decades of hands-on, practical experience, passing on what I’ve learned from my successes, plus the occasional disaster (it happens to us all….!)

Among the many subjects you’ll learn about on the course:

  • getting the most from your plot, wherever you garden
  • how to become as self-sufficient as possible in home-grown food
  • sustaining a year-round harvest
  • planning your sowing and growing to maximise your harvest
  • which fruit, veg and herbs to grow for best results
  • the winter veg garden
  • extending the seasons
  • polytunnel and greenhouse growing


Show me photos of your garden through the photo uploading facility and I’ll help you draw up designs for your plot with loads of advice and suggestions tailored to your particular circumstances.

You’ll work your way through four assignments, backed up with my in-depth video lectures packed with tips, techniques and sound, solid advice – all you could need, in fact, to make a real success of your home-grown life!

The courses run every month, so just book yourself in whenever it suits you. The course details are here – I look forward to meeting you there.
