March Meeting – Ideas for the Garden in Spring



Our next meeting is on Monday 4th March.

Our speaker for the evening is Jeff Soulsby whose talk is entitled Ideas for the Garden in Spring.

Jeff managed Hillier Garden and Plant Centre for 12 years and now runs his own peat-free nursery at Harvington near Evesham.  Jeff specialises in herbaceous plants and supplies a diverse range of plants to many National Trust gardens, including Hidcote, as well as the likes of Spetchley Park and Painswick Rococo gardens.

Jeff will illustrate his talk using actual plants (as opposed to slides) and will be selling plants on the night.

Our March meeting sees the return of the very popular plant sales raising money for the Percy Picton Memorial Fund.  We would like as many people as possible to contribute good quality plant material to the sale, so if you would like to help then please do.  If  bringing plants please arrive by 7pm, before the big rush.

There will also be an opportunity to secure places on either or both of the Evening Garden Visit and the Grand Day Out.

As always the the venue for the evening is Colwall Village Hall and complimentary refreshments will be available from 7:00pm.

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

Remember that membership needs to be renewed from January.
