Our second visit of the year was a return to Drinkstone Park. It was a lovely evening, with 21 of us enjoying the wander round a beautiful garden, ending up of course with some marvellous cake!
We are back at the Institute on August 5th, for a talk entitled "Gardeners Delight - Mainly Veg", to be given by Michael Warren. Michael started gardening at the age of four helping his Grandfather, and the interest has never left him. In 1968 he became a photographer and his gardening knowledge came in useful illustrating books on the subject; an area in which he has continued to specialize. He is a Liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Gardeners and a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Horticulture. His love of travel involves him in organizing and leading garden tours and cruises. This should be a very interesting talk with some wonderful photographs to illustrate the subject.
The meeting starts at 7.30pm, entry is only £2, including light refreshments, and everybody is welcome to come along - you don't need to be a member!
