A winter survival kit for hardy plants was the topic chosen by Don Witten when he travelled from Sheffield to join members of the Barkwith and District Gardeners Association at their monthly meeting.
Don is well known as a Euphorbia specialist and included them in his talk as he expanded the advice given on the handouts he had prepared, all illustrated by the superb slides which he had taken.
He had also taken along a selection of plants which were available for members to buy.
The flower of the month competition was won by Shirley Booth and Les Robinson and Terry Ringrose volunteered to prepare the group’s Christmas tree for the Wragby Methodist festival weekend in December.
Nominations were invited for the committee for the coming year in preparation for the annual meeting next month, which starts at the earlier time of 7pm to allow more time to enjoy the images taken by Michael Bradley of the coach outings during the year.
