We all start somewhere and this is the start of our blog. If someone starts a gardening blog, they usually provide a run-through of their garden. So we’ll start with a “what you can expect” at a typical group get-together. Which seems a friendlier way of saying “meeting”.
The talks – a short “Plant of the Month” talk is given by one of our members and is followed by our star turn (see programme) – start at around 2.30. We say “around” because the actual time is normally dictated by the sight of the queue at the plant sales tables diminishing to the few who can’t make up their mind and who, if left alone, will continue to not make up their mind for another hour! By around 3.45 it’s time for a cuppa, a chat, the raffle drawing and another chance to snap up a plant or two (if you can make your mind up) before we gradually leave to get a bit of gardening in before it gets dark.
