If you have an interest in gardening please come to join Tim Bendix and the newly formed Gardening Club. Dates for the next few months are advertised below.
Wednesday 6TH February at 7.30pm in the Village Hall.
Tom Pattinson, a highly skilled gardener and author of the very popular gardening column in the Northumberland Gazette, challenges us to think about our readiness for the gardening year ahead.
China is one of the most diverse environments in the world for temperate plants and is home to many of our most familiar garden plants. While many people think that the golden age of plant hunting has past there are vast remote areas of this region where new plants are still being described. The area is home to vast pristine mountains and lush valleys and is an ideal habitat for the preservation of and creation of plant species.
Peter has had the fortune to visit twice with various other horticulturists and plant experts. He will talk about the plants and habitats that we encountered, ponder on their future and consider how that relates to our own gardens as well as showing photographs of some of the most wonderful landscapes in the world.
