Outing to Munstead Wood: Everyone enjoyed the trip to Munstead Wood on 7 June - Annabel Watts, the Head Gardener, gave us a very interesting tour and explained how the garden had been transformed gradually over many years by Gertrude Jekyll when she lived there. In the 1950s it was much changed and had now been brought back to its original design and planting.
Our propagation workshop on Sunday 19 August has been rearranged for Saturday 30 September. Come and learn some low cost methods to keep your garden well stocked and your plants thriving. If you are interested in joining us please contact Louise Buchanan 645197 to reserve your place. Numbers will be limited so donít leave it too late. More details to follow.
What an incredible day for our Fernhurst May Revels this year - the May Queen shone and so did the sun. Thank to everyone who gave plants to our stall and of course to all those who came along and purchased plants - a wonderful day all round.
The sun shone for our Open Gardens yesterday. Sunday 11 June when six of our members very kindly opened their gardens - they were all very different from a bee friendly garden to an amazing display of vegetables in a small front garden. Tea and cakes was also enjoyed during the afternoon. Click here for more photographs of the gardens.
