Peter Jones invited us to romp through “The Night Garden” on 16th September.  This most qualified of gardeners gave members an often hilarious insight into why we should invest in a round the clock sanctum and why the garden’s intimate space should be fragrant, make sounds and be, above all, tactile ( without prickles for those naturalists among us!).

He gave us ideas for non-mowing, scented lawns and low-maintenance planting.  We heard that certain colours are better for the night and that we could introduce seasonal and imaginative accessories to express individuality – and to not worry about the expense!

Peter’s unusual planting methods involving sodden newspaper, methylated spirits, washing-up liquid and liquid fertilizer give much food for thought.

It was a most entertaining and informative evening.

Members, remember to get your photos to Reg Gethin.
