July Meeting – Pin Me to the Wall…

andrew mikolajski

Our next meeting, on Monday 2nd July, is given by Andrew Mikolajski.  Entitled ‘Pin Me to the Wall…and do what you want with me‘ it is a fascinating look into the choice and management of wall shrubs and climbers.

Andrew has had a long career as author, lecturer and speaker, with over 30 titles to his name.  Recently he acted as horticultural adviser on the new edition of the RHS A-Z Encyclopedia of Garden Plants.  He has taught both garden design and the history of gardening.  According to his own website, it has been said of him:  “Andrew has a unique style of presentation which made his talk entertaining, informative and memorable”.  It should be a fun evening.

As always the the venue for the evening is Colwall Village Hall and complimentary refreshments will be available from 7:00pm.  Plants will be on sale before the meeting.  Anyone wishing to contribute plants to the plant stall (all proceeds going to the Percy Picton Memorial Fund) is most welcome to.

Programmes for the Annual Flower and Produce Show will be available at the meeting.  It will be the last opportunity to purchase tickets for the  Grand Day Out to Cerney House and Abbey house Gardens on July 17th.

The evening is free to members or £5 per visitor. Annual membership (which runs from January to December) is £15.
