Horticulturalist Sandra Pullman will be showing Docklanders how to grow vegetables in pots at a lunchtime session on Thursday, August 9.

To be held at The Hub at 80 Harbour Esplanade, Ms Pullman will pass on the tips that apartment dwellers need to grow food at home.

The free session will examine which vegetables are suitable for pots, the potting mix you need, and what manure and nutrients you need to make your vegetables thrive.  Ms Pullman will also outline how to manage pests and diseases organically so that your home-grown vegetables are pesticide and toxin-free.

Ms Pullman is a qualified horticulturalist with 21years of experience. She currently teaches vegetable gardening at Victoria University and at several community centres around Melbourne.

She was a horticultural advisor to ABC TV’s Gardening Australia and has contributed gardening articles to a wide variety of magazine and newspapers.  For more information, call The Hub on 8622 4822.
