Free growing courses

Grow It Yourself (GIY) Ireland has made all of their online courses available free of charge in a bid to help people during the cost of living crisis and to ensure that actions to tackle climate change remain top of the agenda. The selection of online courses is designed to help beginner and experienced growers alike get from plot to plate successfully.

GIY say that we should all consider these planet-friendly New Year resolutions.

Get growing. Spring will be here before you know it and the best time to plant many plants and flowers.

Begin preparing: while you have downtime in the depths of winter, start off small and pick what you want to grow and where to grow it. Make sure to factor in how much space you have to work with. While growing food can be done anywhere (on a windowsill/balcony/greenhouse/garden) not all plants require the same amount of space.

For free online courses and more growing tips see The GIY Ultimate Starter GROWBox is available from for €39.99
