Gardening | Plants | Soil | Shade

If you don’t get the right plant for the right place, then your plants will struggle to flourish. Some gardens or parts of the garden are a bit trickier to choose suitable plants for, or can provide you with “opportunities” to grow different plants; we never have “problems” in gardening! This can either be an illustrated talk on addressing the various problem places gardeners have and how to overcome them, or an illustrated talk on these specific soils and aspects: Gardening on Clay Soils. Gardening on Chalky/Alkaline Soils. Gardening in Shady Places. Just choose which you’d prefer.

About Geoff Hodge

I am a freelance garden writer, writing for various national gardening magazines and websites – as well as lots more besides! Previously, I was the Web Editor for the Royal Horticultural Society, Gardening Editor of Garden News magazine and Technical Editor of Garden Answers magazine. I have written eight gardening books, with titles ranging from pruning and propagation to allotments and vegetable growing. I broadcast on the gardening programmes on both BBC Radio Cambridgeshire and BBC Essex. And I appear on Q&A panels at flower shows across the country and give lots of talks and demonstrations at garden centres and for gardening clubs. As well as "live" talks, I can also give my talks via group-organised Zoom meetings. My fee for this is £95.
