Hodnet & District Garden Club – May 2013

Our next meeting will be on Tuesday 21st May at the Lyon Hall, when we welcome back Bryan Howard.
Bryan has been working with plants for most of his life. A student at the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew, followed by a spell at Kew’s Wakehurst Place in Sussex, he has been a horticultural advisor for Shropshire Council and for the past twenty-five years has been assisting with Radio Shropshire’s gardening programme.  He is currently a plant advisor for Dobbies Garden Centres.
With all this knowledge to share, we should enjoy a very interesting talk on
Pond Renovations’, where he will discuss pond materials, safety measures, range of aquatic and associated plants, containers and appropriate perimeter plants.  Every garden should have some sort of water feature, small or large, to add interest and dimension, as well as the benefits to wildlife.
HODNET & DISTRICT GARDEN CLUB meet every month on the third Tuesday at the Lyon Hall, 7:30pm. Visitors are most welcome to come along to any of our talks and partake in a cup of tea and biscuit. Entry fee for guests is £2.00 per person, or why not join our club? It’s only £12 for a whole year.
