Growing Through the Seasons 2021 wall calendar
*** Limited stock available ***
This calendar is the perfect gift for gardeners, allotment growers, vegetable lovers and anyone keen to get started or just enjoying a bit of gardening guidance throughout the year. Not forgetting the exquisite artwork, this will appeal to anyone with a passion for botanical illustration, artisan craft and traditional printmaking techniques.
This exciting project has been a collaboration between artist, printmaker and textile designer – Isla Middleton and Bryony Middleton, Head Gardener at Sharpham Trust in Devon, who manages their 19th Century Walled Vegetable Garden organically and the ornamental grounds.
The calendar is a celebration of seasonal vegetables, edible flowers and foraged plants, beautifully illustrated with full page original hand carved linocut prints.
It is the second edition and has been created to inspire, encourage and teach you to sow, grow and harvest fresh produce straight from the garden. It also promotes the importance of seasonal, and locally grown organic food and the positive benefits of connecting with nature. Each month will offer advice and practical growing tips to help you plan the year from seed to harvest. A growing chart will also be included at the back of the calendar.
The calendar will have an organic look and feel, with a rich colour palette. The calendars are printed using eco inks on 100% recycled on a textured light grey rustic paper from waste fibre. The folded size will be 300 x 300mm hanging size will be 300 x 600 mm, stapled on the fold, and hole at top for hanging.
