Quote of the Month

There can be no other occupation like gardening in which, if you were to creep up behind someone at their work, you would find them smiling.

September Visit to Florymar Viveros - Report and Pictures

On Tuesday this week around 20 members visited the Florymar garden centre.  

The general consensus of opinion was that the price of plants was rather high and the members were not overly impressed.  

Our Spanish guide, however, did a splendid job trying to show us around and advise on which plants would cope with our cold,
windy conditions during the winter.

Jo and Tom were the winners of the Florymar word quiz winning a bottle of white wine.

Sue Rockall won the raffle prize - a scented yellow rose.

Final reminder for those wishing to order seeds from Chiltern Seeds, roses from David Austin or bulbs from Peter Nyssen.  Please look up their websites, make your selection and let Greg know, gregstarr4 @ hotmail.com by the end of this week.   We'll arrange to collect the money from you and then a further amount once we know the cost of postage. 

Next meeting will be a guided walk hoping to see seasonal flora of the countryside.  More on this later
