Helen Dillon regaled her audience at the meeting of Lincoln Hardy Plant Society in Welton’s William Farr School with her talk ‘Keeping the Show on the Road’.

“No garden is ever finished,” she suggested and everyone learned so much, with down to earth advice on growing, maintenance, propagating and making constant changes.

All these tales were told with a clear proviso that if it doesn’t work or grow as you would like, to get rid of it.

It was an early start for Helen who flew in from her Dublin home with the wonders of modern technology in her luggage, a memory stick, containing some stunning images of plants, shrubs and her world-famous garden, which has been visited by TV cameras, journalists, the great and good of the gardening world and countless visitors, during the 40-plus years she has lived and gardened there.

The raffle included one of Helen’s books, signed by the author, and three prizes donated by Mill Farm Nursery at Middle Rasen.
