I really enjoyed the Monday evening classes…

Dalkey-Garden-School-Gardening-Classes-Sunflower

“I really enjoyed the Monday evening classes that you ran in the term to Christmas. You have an encyclopaedic knowledge of everything to do with the garden, and I learnt a lot from your off the cuff comments, as well as from the prepared material for each class. The practical tips you gave, as well as quoting from the experts, were all very useful.”

Peter Cullen
