OUR May meeting was well attended and we enjoyed an informative, entertaining and practical talk and demonstration entitled "Colour Magic".

Our speaker was Mandie Potter, who has worked locally for Bob Brown in Badsey and Lord Dulverton at Batsford House. Her expertise is that of ensuring plants compliment each other by choosing the right colours of foliage when planted next to each other and if there are flowers, they too are pleasing to the eye. Mandie had brought a diverse selection of plants to demonstrate this and it was clear as the talk continued how easy it is to get in wrong! I am sure we have all made that type of mistake at one time or another but Mandie made getting it right seem very easy. We all went home much wiser.

Our June meeting on Wednesday 27 June is our first garden visit of 2018. We meet at 7pm at Kiftsgate Gardens, Hidcote when we hope for a dry, warm evening to enjoy this beautiful garden. If anyone has transport difficulties, please contact committee members. We look forward to seeing everyone and as usual, guests are very welcome.
