At our March meeting Brian Ellis from Avondale Nursery, Bagington gave an excellent illustrated talk entitled ‘Texture and Foliage’ which showed how foliage is as important as flowers in the garden .He emphasised that it is important to think about the foliage of plants –the texture, colour, markings and shape of leaves are important. Brian always tells people ‘don’t just buy for the flowers, buy for the foliage-flowers are an added bonus’.

The evening concluded with a sale of some of the many superb plants Brian had brought along with him from his Nursery.

Ebrington took part in the Annual Inter Gardening Club quiz held at Bidford on March 15 –we finished a very creditable third with Blockley being the winners. Thank you Bidford for a great evening!

Our next event is our ANNUAL SPRING SHOW on Saturday, April 7 in the Village Hall. The Show will open for viewing at 2.30pm. Spring flowers, bulbs and children’s classes - tea and cakes –all welcome.
