Well known gardening expert Harry Leach gave a very practical and interesting talk on lawns at the recent meeting.

He took his audience through the full process of preparation, sowing, growing and continual care and maintenance.

Members were amazed at the many potential hazards including numerous pests and diseases and he summed up by saying ‘lawns are lovely, but they are very hard work’.

Jane Perkins gained the points for showing the best flower of the month.

A reminder was given of the Spring Show to be held on Saturday, April 12.

Schedules are now available giving details of more than 40 classes in five sections, flowers, produce, floral art, photography and handicrafts.

Les Robinson, the coach outings organiser, gave an update on the extensive range of visits he has organised which in addition to the many day trips includes a three-day visit to Shropshire in May and a five-day visit to the Isle of Man in June.

The next day out is to the Harrogate Spring Show on Thursday, April 24 and Les can be contacted on 01673 857063.
