July Meeting -Morton Hall Gardens

morton hall

Our next meeting is on Monday 1st July. Our speaker for the evening is Harry Green.

Harry is head gardener at Morton Hall Gardens in Holberrow Green near Redditch. A relatively young garden, Morton Hall consists of eight acres of gardens and park encircling the house. They were designed by landscape architect Charles Chesshire  as a succession of distinct ‘garden rooms’. While each of these rooms has its individual character, defined by landscape, planting style and colour scheme, there is a strong sense of continuity. Harry’s talk will take us through the garden and hopefully reveal some of the secrets behind the upkeep of such a lovely place.

There are some places still available for the Grand Day Out on Tuesday July 16th to Llanover House Garden and High Glanau Manor. As this is the last meeting before the trip the full balance should be paid this evening.

As usual the the venue for the evening is Colwall Village Hall and complimentary refreshments will be available from 7:00pm, along with plant sales. Talk starts at 7.30.

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. Thank-you to everyone who helped ensure the hall was left spotless after the meeting.

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