Time to get in touch!

Two Horticultural Society events coming up which need action today if you’d like to take part!

Group visit to Mapperton House August 11th

There will be a group visit to Mapperton House on Tuesday August 11th. Tickets can be purchased via Jenny Harding (jennyhlyme@hotmail.co.uk; 07773 604137) at £10 each, or £8 if ten or more people purchase.

The gardens are open but not the house. The café is also open or you may take a picnic. Opening times 11-5. Please advise Jenny if you wish to visit by end of day on Friday 7 August.

Share people’s gardens in our next Zoom meeting

Our next Zoom meeting will be held on Wednesday 26 August at 7.30pm. Members will be speaking about and showing some of their favourite plants and recent garden projects. There will be time for Q&A after each speaker so that we can learn from each other. We will also intersperse the chats with a virtual tour of a sumptuous garden.

We already have some speakers lined up for the evening and would like a few more who would be willing to share aspects of their garden with others. All you would need to do is provide 2-4 photos illustrating your chosen topic. We would look for people to chat for around 3-6 minutes (depending on how many photos they have) and then answer questions from other members.

Please send your name and a sentence about what you might like to share with others to tricia@thegardenersblacksmith.co.uk by Friday 7 August.
