Summer Events

May Meeting. Our May meeting was held on 4th . Mike Burke from The Gardens Group spoke to us about ‘Low Maintenance Gardening’. He showed us a selection of plants that need little attention, also some that easily adapt to our changing climate.

Mike’s talks are always excellent with plenty of humour.

Following our visit to Poundbury Gardens in April, we have received a link to view the interviews with our members by Swiss Television. They did a feature on King Charles and his Poundbury project click on the link below and select the picture of King Charles:-
