Our next meeting is this Thursday 13th April @7.30pm in the Community Centre, when we welcome Dr Andrew Ward with his talk on ‘Plants that Excite’ (A personal selection, mainly of herbaceous perennial plants – these are a mixture of unusual varieties of more common plants and some rarer ones which are just as “growable”.)
Andrew set up his nursery at Norwell near Newark over 22 years ago and specialises in choice and unusual herbaceous perennials and alpines. The nursery is based around a one acre plantsman’s garden which holds over 2,000 different species. Andrew is a well known and respected speaker to the Hardy Plant Society and many other gardening groups, and he really knows his stuff! Well worth listening to….and he provides a list of all the plants illustrated in his talk so you don’t have to write it all down yourself!
Guests welcome – £2 with tea/coffee/biscuits beforehand and a raffle. Don’t forget to bring along any spare seeds or plants you have yourself to sell too.
