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.

AGC March Meeting - Choices! Choices! Choices!

The next Garden Club Meeting will be held on Tuesday 11th March.
 There are two offers this month!!  
Numbers are limited to 12 in each group so first come first served

The first is to visit a very successful and inspiring smallholding between Torrox Costa and Torrox Pueblo growing a wide range of organic fruit and vegetables using the permaculture method.  This is a sloping garden of some 2 acres and you will need to wear non-slip footwear.  A walking stick might be useful too though there are some steps and natural pathways.   There are chickens and a stream at the bottom of the plot so I'm sure the visit will be very interesting.   Dave and Gill have generously offered to supply teas and coffees.

The second is to revisit Lindsay Blyth's lovely flower garden near Alcaucin.  
Those of you who went there before will remember that it is a very impressive garden and that Lindsay was kind enough to allow us to bring trowels and secateurs to take cuttings etc. 
 Our last visit was in June and a lot of the plants, though stil lovely, had passed their flowering best and it should be exciting to see all the new spring growth.  
After the visit there last time we all enjoyed a pleasant lunch at a nearby restaurant. 
For those new to the Club, Lindsay Blyth spent her whole career in horticulture and is the current president of the Axarquia branch of the Mediterranean Garden Society.
Just to remind you too that our Club is an affiliate member of the MGS and information on this can be found on their internet.

Directions for both visits will be posted on the blog nearer the visit.  Please watch this space!

Please let me know which of these visits you'd like to join by 5.00 pm on Monday 10th March so that I can let our respective hosts know numbers.
Thanks, Carol
