“I dived into Sprout School unsure if I'd really understand as I've never really done much gardening. But there I was doing each weeks simple home work, loving the live webinars and boom I've got the confidence to plan my new garden. This is course for you if you need a plant and gardening confidence boost!

"A huge thank you to Chloe for such a fantastic resource and online program! We’d spent years looking at a dustbowl of a yard after renovating, and as a complete beginner to gardening I didn’t have the knowledge to know how to begin creating a space that our young family could enjoy. I’m now armed with the ability and confidence to get started and have thoroughly enjoyed the process of putting that knowledge into action and watching the growth. It’s been the beginning of a wider positive change for us all and really getting back to roots with nature one step at a time." 

Katherine, October 2022 Sprout School Student

"Just a quick thank you for the time and effort you put into Sprout School FEB 2022. Your energy, passion & the generosity you showed in sharing your time, experience & knowledge was amazing. I know I will be able to draw on so much from this course as I progress with building my new garden spaces."

From composting and fertilising to keeping indoor plants alive, healthy and thriving, there really is something for every gardener out there, even a beginner like me. Chloe is a fantastic teacher - she’s so knowledgable, engaging and inspiring. I loved it and thoroughly recommend Sprout School!

Katy, October 2021 Sprout School Student

"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!" 

Anu, February 2022 Sprout School Student

Sprout School was so much fun and inspired me with a new passion for gardening. You have made gardening accessible by distilling complex information into a really easy format and encouraged us that we've got this. I've always felt like I was missing a big piece of the puzzle, stumbling around a bit in the dark but now it's like I understand all the components, I feel confident and am seeing the results immediately!

"Sprout School was such an amazing experience! I came into the course a very new gardener and ‘graduated’ feeling so inspired and more in tune with my garden at home, with more confidence to give things a go. Chloe is so knowledgeable and passionate - her experience is evident and her love for all things gardening is contagious. I wish I could do it all over again!!"
