Members were very pleased to welcome 28 members, including two new members, and a guest on Wednesday, February 3. With spring on the way and bulbs growing rapidly in the garden, members were delighted to have Steve Cropley from the

Hoyland Plant Centre.

The Hoyland Plant Centre is the holder of the National Collection of Agapanthus and Tulbaghia and Steve and his wife exhibit at all the big flower and plant shows including Chelsea and Harrogate. After Steve’s talk, members were able to purchase several different varieties of Agapanthus and had advice on planting.
