Edibleculture – Education and pricing
We want visitors to Edibleculture to feel welcome, inspired, and educated so don’t expect salesmen trying to push through a sale. As plants people we would rather explain to our visitors the benefit you will get from a certain species or variety and whether it is suitable for you and your garden, rather than sell you something that isn’t suitable.
We are keen to work with permaculturists, forest gardeners and ‘no dig’ growers. We are a established business but we as growers ourselves want to learn and develop.
Through our work with the Abbey School students we are providing an insight into how a horticultural business is run. We are keen to pass our knowledge on to the next generation. This will also be demonstrated through our display gardens and courses ranging in subjects such as fruit tree pruning, edible gardening and propagation.
