Garden Club

The Club’s 2008 meetings began with a visit from Reg Moule who came to speak on Houseplants.  Reg trained many years ago at Pershore College and at present works for a Garden Centre in Worcestershire as well as regularly contributing to a local radio station.  His talk was very informative and demonstrated how to keep our plants healthy and where to look for signs of pests and diseases and how to prevent or combat them.  He then went on to show us how cutting back orchid stems, once they have flowered, would promote a new stem to grow and flower; this could happen in several places in succession until you got down to the crown of the plant.  The evening finished off with Reg inviting questions from the floor on all aspects of gardening; his knowledge of all things horticultural was certainly very extensive.

The next meeting will be on 21st February at 7.30 p.m. when David Arthey, from Willersey, will visit the Club for an illustrated talk on Flowers of the French Alps.  Visitors and new members will be most welcome to attend.
