Summer Programme

Just a quick notification that the Spring newsletter and coach trip booking form have been emailed to members today – please check your inboxes and spam, as I’m one new website manager only just starting to grow in confidence!

The newsletter is full of summer activities, bookable immediately, mainly thanks to the work of new member Julie Loughlin, who deserves more than just a pat on the back and round of applause. Thank you so much, Julie! Perhaps we can all raise a glass to you at the NGS open garden on Friday 1 May?

Flush with excitement over the Summer programme, don’t forget that we still have 3 more indoor meetings to come before we can really say that Spring is here and I for one am looking forward to hearing Adam Pasco on Saturday. See you there!

Meeting: Saturday 1st February 2pm

Adam Pasco – Grow the Best Glorious Plants

 

Creating a garden with colour and interest right through the year starts with choosing the best plants. In this beautifully illustrated talk Adam Pasco introduces a wide range of glorious plants that are guaranteed to succeed, whether growing them in flower borders or patio pots and baskets.

Adam shares a wealth of practical tips and ideas for choosing and growing plants, plus ideas on successful planting combinations. And why not save money by growing from seed, following Adam’s advice on seed sowing and even collecting and saving seed from your own garden plants.

Full of inspiring planting ideas, and illustrated with pictures of plants at their best photographed in Adam’s own garden, ‘Grow The Best Glorious Plants’ is sure to fire the imagination with a wealth of wonderful suggestions, and introduce new plants you may not have considered growing before.

Members, please be sure to arrive early for this popular speaker. Annie from Daisy Roots will be bringing plants for sale, but don’t forget your contribution to the HHPS plant table! Guests (£5 entrance fee) always welcome at our meetings.
