20th February

This month's meeting was a presentation on Great British Gardens given by Jeff Bates. It was very interesting, and presented in an entertaining and informative way. There were gardens from Scotland, England, Wales and Ireland. We were given the history of the gardens, and information on the plants and trees that were to be found at the various locations.

Members were also invited to take part in a competition if they wished, planting 2 seed potatoes in a container, then to bring the resulting crop to our garden party in June, with a prize for the winner.
