May News

Our May meeting was very enjoyable. Mike Burke, form Castle Gardens gave us an excellent talk on houseplants. He covered all aspects of growing indoor plants in his own amusing yet informative way.

This was our last meeting at the school until September. On June 6th we will be visiting members’ gardens in Elwell Street, Upwey. The first garden will be Batch Cottage, behind no.18. We then cross the road to no.7 where there will be drinks and nibbles. Parking is scarce in Elwell Street so car sharing or walking would be a good idea, if possible.

One of our members recently visited the Old Rectory at Litton Cheney under the NGS open gardens scheme. She was very impressed and thoroughly recommends a visit. The garden will be open on Sunday 19th May from 2pm till 5pm in aid of Weldmar Hospice . Homemade teas will be available.

Reminder; Summer Show, August 17th. Full details on the Shows link.
