Gardening with Nature training

These sessions are part of a series of training sessions taking place at the Cecil Sharp House garden through the year for people who want to learn more about plants and the practicalities of taking care of them in a permaculture garden.

Pruning and taking cuttings

Saturday 7th October 1pm-5pm

£6/Free for regular volunteers

Come along to find out about pruning plants and taking cuttings. This time of year is a good time to take softwood and hardwood cuttings that will slowly develop roots over the winter. We will explain what the difference is between hardwood and softwood cuttings and how to take them so they have the best chance for success.

Permablitz lighting


Perma – from permaculture, a design system for sustainable living. A permablitz is organised to implement a permaculture design. Blitz – is the German word for a lightning strike. A permablitz involves the focused application of energy to install part of a permaculture system. When lightning strikes it heats the air around it making the nitrogen in the air absorbable in water. So the nitrogen dissolves in the rain, which fertilizes the ground where it falls. This is just what a permablitz is designed to do: create a fertile soil where plants can grow.
