There was a good attendance of members at the last club meeting in the Town Hall, when the speaker was Dr Rachel Petheram.
Her topic - Cutting Gardens’ - Hints for flower growing - which proved to be fascinating and was delivered in a delightful, easy manner.
Dr Petheram specialises in English grown flowers and grows most of hers in the walled kitchen garden at Doddington Hall near Lincoln.
A lecturer at both Doddington Hall and RHS Harlow Carr, she is passionate about natural seasonal flowers and producing flowers in a sustainable way.
A lively question and answer session followed with lots of participation from the members to end not just a lovely evening, but a very successful winter session of monthly meetings too.
Arrangements were finalised for the first of the outdoor meetings - a garden visit by invitation of member Clare Lee on Tuesday June 10.
