39 members and 1 visitor attended our June meeting when Chris South came along to give us a talk and demonstration on “Masterclass in Propagation”.
Chris tutors at Elmstead Market and was very knowledgeable and passionate about horticulture. She showed us the best way to sow seeds (most of us sow too many) and a number of cuttings. She also showed us how it was possible to take several cuttings from one leaf of a houseplant. Even the most avid gardener amongst us felt that we learnt a great deal and I’m sure lots of people will now be trying out her ideas.
Our next meeting is on 28th July and is our annual social night. This year’s theme is “Mad Hatters Tea Party”. This is an opportunity for those of you who wish to dress as your favourite character from ‘Alice in Wonderland’ or ‘Alice Through the Looking Glass’ or please just come and enjoy the evening. There will be Themed Goodies to eat and Drink, Quizzes and of course a Raffle appropriate to the occasion. Have you considered making a ”Mad Hat” to wear to the Party – there’s a thought……………..
Cost to non-members is £5.00 and we would appreciate knowing in advance to assist with catering. Contact numbers are below.
