"Rootbound and Houseplantery" Workshop with Alice Vincent of Noughticulture

About this experience

Join us on our award winning, organic farm for an exciting new workshop for 2020 with Alice Vincent from the hugely popular Instagram account "@Noughticulture".

An interactive house plant workshop, talk, book discussion and signing with Alice on Saturday 29th February 2020.

"A champion of urban gardening" The Finery

Coinciding with the launch of her latest book, Rootbound, Alice joins us for this very rare opportunity to spend a day in her company talking house plants and all things nature as she shares success strategies for indoor gardening and beautiful house plant arrangements. 

Our hugely popular rural skills workshops begin at 10am and run to approximately 4pm, here on our farm on the Lincolnshire-Cambridgeshire border, just 4 minutes from Market Deeping, and 18 minutes from Peterborough and Stamford train stations.

We'll have welcome refreshments ready for when you arrive and, after a quick opportunity to say hello to your fellow workshop students, it's time for the fun to begin:

  • The house plant basics: why they die and how not to kill them!

  • Choosing the right house plants and taking a look at the different types available; their origin and balancing decor to create stunning indoor themes.

  • Discover house plant needs and how to correctly pot up a variety of houseplants, which you'll take away with you as a souvenir of the day.

  • This workshop includes a copy of Alice's brand new release, Rootbound, personally signed to you by Alice.

  • Tour with Alice our almost entirely pollinator-friendly gardens we have created here on the farm - we'll explain how and why we have planted the way we have with bees and pollinators in mind. 

There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and get practical advice on house plants and indoor gardening, throughout the day.

We like to run our workshops fairly and honestly. Your booking secures a very limited place, so is non-refundable - if you can’t make it, you can send a friend or colleague instead. If at the end of any of our workshops you haven't enjoyed yourself and don’t believe that it has helped you to achieve what it set out to, we will gladly refund you 100% of the price you paid.


We are actively trying to help the environment, so all workshop confirmations and supporting information will be emailed to you, including a reminder the week before the workshop with details and directions to the farm.
