Down To Earth
Our first meeting in the New year was well attended and a good discussion took place about places to visit and the general content of the forthcoming meetings, which as previously agreed would be held on the first Wednesday afternoon of each month.
February 5th meeting will be held at Sheila Goldsmiths house ,who can be contacted on 07967 147358,seeds can be swopped ,garden design discussed and hopefully some firm dates can be made for visits .
Chloe O'cconnor is currently arranging a trip to the Hampton Court Palace flower show for our July meeting and we hope to have the NGS yellow book soon to choose other wonderful garden trips.
Plenty to look forward to in 2020.
A Welcome for the New group and Members
After the initial set up meeting of 'Down to Earth' the members present discussed the format for the group's future, considering interests and wishes put forward . It was generally agreed that the agenda for the year would incorporate the following .
1.We would discuss, advise and research matters concerning growing,propagation,planting,
planning and designing all in our amateur capacities and from experience.
2.We would have regular visits ,perhaps alternate months and some impromptu visits,to shows,
exhibitions, NGS gardens and others, garden centres and nurseries as chosen by members.
It was agreed that the meeting would take place the first Wednesday afternoon in the month at 2.15pm ,but that could change.
As 1st January is a bank holiday our next meeting is to be 2nd January when we will jointly make a stab at an agenda, so ideas of places to go etc. would be welcome.
