It is with regret that we announce the cancellation of the final talks in this season’s Winter Programme. Your committee wishes you all safe and well and will keep you advised about the status of the Summer events as the Covid-19 situation develops.
In the meantime, enjoy your gardens!
Sandy Primrose – Modern Plant Hunters
Sandy’s research into contemporary plant hunting will fascinate our audience this month. His stories of modern plant hunters and their breathtaking adventures give an insight into the ever-increasing numbers of new plant introductions. His work also examines the search for medicinal plants and considers such developments as the effect of habitat destruction on plant loss and plant diversity.
Guests (£5 entrance fee) always welcome at our meetings.
Annie from Daisy Roots will be bringing plants for sale, but don’t forget your contribution to the HHPS plant table… and a further reminder that your committee will be really grateful for your help in stacking chairs after tea.
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.
