Sprout School will make you a BETTER & MORE CONFIDENT DIY GARDENER


"I won’t use bamboozling botanical names, expect you to understand detailed soil science or turn you into a landscape architect.

This course will give you the confidence to start your own garden for the first time, tackle a DIY garden makeover or expand your garden beyond a few plants here and there."

More About Me

"I loved every week of Sprout School, and love how it’s given me more focus in my garden. I’m spotting signs of sucking insects in my garden, and looking for good bugs! I’m so much more conscious of my impact, and overall more confident with my decisions. 


Claire - Melbourne, VIC

Thank you Chloe for instilling in me a passion I didn’t even know I had. My garden went from being a boring, intimidating and neglected dust pit to now being a place full of colour, experiments and wonderful possibilities. This course has been life changing and has helped in many ways that transcend beyond the garden. Thank you! 

Lauren - Melbourne, VIC

"I’m so glad I did the course, it’s really changed my frame of mind when it comes to gardening and I don’t really feel the pressure anymore about doing everything all at once and having it all look perfect. I’m loving the small changes I’ve been making this past month to little pockets of my garden, and it’s really bringing me so much joy!"
