November’s regular event is the Society’s AGM, followed by a Talk – ‘Foraging from the Garden’ by Anne Swithinbank on November 28th 2018 (Wednesday) at 7.30pm
Well-known local horticulturalist, writer and broadcaster Anne will be talking about how to turn your plot, however small, into a miniature forest garden with soft fruit, rhubarb, herbs, edible flowers and a few veg. Edibles are as ornamental as any other plant, especially purple-flowered and podded peas, rainbow chard and coloured kales. Anne will also talk on what she grows in her garden for culinary use and explain how this creates more relaxed planting which is wildlife friendly.
This will be shortly followed by our last event of the year: on December 5th 2018 (Wednesday) at 7.30pm
We will be holding a Christmas Social with a bring and share supper at the village hall. To entertain us, a Quiz/Seed Swap and Sweet Pea planting.
Next year, our first event will be on January 23rd 2019 (Wednesday) at 7.30pm. Demonstration ‘Seasonal Flower Arranging’ by Sarah Broom – with hints and tips for the floral classes at the Summer Show.
