At their meeting on Monday, February 15, members of Beckingham Gardeners’ Club welcomed their speaker Neil Timm, from The Fern Nursery, Market Rasen, who spoke about his life as a Landscaper. He informed members how he went about designing a garden to take full advantage of the natural points of interest.
He advised members to look at their gardens at different times of the day, to identify areas of shade, semi-shade and exposure to sunshine. Plants can then be selected that will thrive in particular environments.
Neil’s talk inspired many members, who couldn’t wait to put his suggestions into practice.
The next meeting for the club is Monday, March 21, in the recreation room, Beckingham, when the speaker will be Will Murch from Ellicar House, Gringley on the Hill, who will be sharing with members his knowledge on Rhododendrons and Camellias.
Future speaker meetings are: April 18 - Victorian Violas - Rob Chapman from Lincoln.
May 16 - Garden Questions & Answers - Tom Wyman.
All meetings start at 7pm in the recreation room, Beckingham. If you are interested in gardening or related subjects why not come along. You will be made very welcome. As well as talks from interesting gardeners, they have trips to gardens and places of gardening interest during the summer months.
