Gardeners’ Club

Had 23 members and visitors attend their meeting on Monday 19th January. The speaker was Pam Tatum, speaking about “Live Fast, Die Young”. This topic was close to Pam’s heart as it dealt with the virtues of Annual Flowers. Pam illustrated her talk with some lovely slides, which showed how she had turned the nursery she had owned in Harpswell, into a beautiful garden and meadow, which is full of annual flowers.

The next meeting on Monday 16th February will have Mike Ireland speaking about Alpines and Small Perennials.

Future speaker meetings are: 16th March - Inspirational Gardens - Graham Bodle, Walker’s Nursery, Blaxton. 20th April - Barn Owls - Annette McKenzie.
