The February meeting of Middle Rasen Horticultural Society welcomed Mavis Wilkinson as speaker, who gave a very interesting talk on Medieval Monastic Gardens.

To demonstrate her title, she took along lots of objects including herbs.

The herbs and plants were used to make wines, mead and beers, as well as medicinal products, including disinfectants.

The group’s next meeting will be the Members Spring Show on Thursday, March 9 at 7.30pm in the Church Hall.

The speaker will be Susi Mulligan and her subject is Willow Weaving.

Visitors will, as always, be welcome, with more details from 01673 843206.
