Sowing a whimsical wildflower meadow

Saturday 3rd March from 1.00pm

Wildflowers are hardy, resilient and well adapted to our Australian climate and soils, making them easy to grow, and en masse plantings can give a breathtaking result!

Though it may sound tempting to randomly cast your seeds around and hope they will sprout, a bit of know how and a properly prepared site will negate wasted time and money, and make for a successful and gorgeous display.

Come and join us for a workshop that will teach you all the tricks to growing your own wildflower meadow for a stunning display next spring! 


Presented by Evette Jungwirth. Evette was part of The Diggers Club team for over 20 years, and as the Seed Manager was very much involved in a substantial amount of our trial work and the selection of our seed varieties. She is a passionate backyard gardener and a Diggers Botanical Guide.
