Three new members were welcomed when Barkwith and District Gardeners Association met for their monthly meeting in the village hall.
The speaker was well known gardening expert and former nursery owner Pam Tatum of Harpswell, who gave a humorous and informative talk, taking annuals as her main topic but including some perennials too.
She stressed the importance of annuals and illustrated her advice with coloured slides.
Every member was presented with a packet of free seeds by Pam too.
Les and Joan Robinson were congratulated on their 40th Wedding Anniversary and Les was thanked for organising the annual dinner, which had been held at the Heneage Arms, Hainton.
Sheila Minns won the flower of the month.
