March 2020

Every time I type in the title of this article I always feel it makes us so sound such a grand Society for those with large gardens and maybe even gardeners! However this is exactly what we are NOT! We are just a very friendly group of people with a passion for plants and their gardens, and who want to share their knowledge and learn from the speakers. 

Our Speaker for our March meeting was one of the best we have had since I have been booking the speakers each year. Roger Hirons, who calls himself the Plant Doctor, gave us an outstanding talk as his knowledge on plants and gardens are second to none. We just all wished that we could have listened to him for another hour but sadly had to vacate the hall by 9pm for the badminton players! Unfortunately new government legislation brought in in late 2019 prevented him from bringing any plants that he talked about for us to purchase or admire. 

It was a pity that a lot of members felt it wise to stay away from the gathering because of the Covid19 but quite understandable. If at a later date we have to cancel any future meeting I will of course contact you beforehand and it will be on our website.

As I write and Covid 19 permitting, our next Meeting will be on the 9 th April when Thomas Stone will be with us to talk about The Roses of Mottisfont Abbey. I do hope we do not have to cancel as I think it should be great evening.

Look forward to welcoming our members and readers of this article who may be inspired to come along and meet us!

Happy Gardening!
