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.

Next Meeting - Visit - Tuesday 14th January

"Happy New Year to everyone and I hope you all had a very good Christmas.
The next Axarquia Garden Club meeting will be held at Vivero Sanchez near Trapiche
at 11.00 am on Tuesday 14th January 2014.

This is a Vivero which was quite run down and of which some of you may already be aware but the two young brothers who have recently taken over the running are making gradual improvements.
They now offer a wide range of good quality plants and garden supplies at keen prices.

Depending on individual quantities purchased they are prepared to offer from 10-15% discount on all purchases.

Take the road from Velez-Malaga to La Vinuela - the A356.  You will pass a Repsol garage on your right and the Vivero is a right turn towards Trapiche and then a right turn soon after.
We can have lunch and or coffee at the nearby Restaurante el Cruce.

I hope as many of you as possible can make it and look forward to seeing you all again.
