ANNUAL REVIEW 2017
The Group has grown in numbers over the past few years and we now have 48 members. We have continued to have a varied programme of events during the year. During the winter months we hold our meetings in Scaldwell Village Hall. Topics have included the history of Farndon Fields Farm Shop by the owner and Colin Ward of Market Deeping, who brought along some rare plants to sell from his specialist garden centre. He also gave us a potted history of how and where he sourced the plants. We also have had plant swaps and questions and answer sessions. During the spring and summer months we visited a number of gardens both large and small. Highlights of the garden visits this year were a visit to Lord Michael Heseltine’s garden at Thenford House and a trip to Hodnet Hall Garden and Old Wollerton Hall Garden including a guided tour and lunch
