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.

Visit to Viveros Guzman 13 January

There was an excellent turn out for the visit to Viveros Guzman and 19 club members arrived at the centre for 11.00 am. It was Tom and my first visit and we left with our car stuffed with plants, just leaving just enough space to squeeze in Linda who travelled with us from Sayalonga. We had expected that the plants would be more expensive, and were pleasantly surprised by the price of the plants we bought.


We have Gill Jordan to thank for the excellent driving directions, and taking copious photos, and of course Cindy for organizing us. Mave has written a short report for those club members who were not able to attend. You missed a treat, and I am sure Tom and I will be visiting Viveros Guzman again.

The raffle prize this month was won by Steve Brogan.

Our Visit to Guzman’s 13th January

This was my first visit to Guzman’s and wow what a “wonderland” to behold, now was that because they were still dismantling the Christmas decorations or because of the range of stock that they carry.  The latter I think.

Realising it was more than a garden centre as we wandered past the interior design shop we headed for the “medicinal section”.  The aromas in there were amazing.  To the rear of that section were shrubs, Phormiums and a good selection of climbers.
 


 
 







 
The cactus area proved a great favourite as they catered for all of the colours in all of the sizes.



Awash with colour from the spring selection of primulas, petunias, carnations, gazanias, chrysanthemums to name but a few attracted us next.


 
 
 

Then pots, well I don’t think I have ever seen such a selection of both glazed and unglazed, I could not begin to tell you how many types and shapes there were.












Garden furniture, water features, fencing and barbeques were also very prominent along with the Bonsai selection.

 



 

 A choice of indoor plants was next on the agenda, what couldn’t you find in there??
 






I just have to say that it was a great few hours but we really do need to teach Gill what to do with hanging baskets!!!
