Our next talk is on Thursday 30th March, 7.30pm at the WI Hall, Lowdham. We will be revisited by Janette Merilion, a well known horticultural lecturer and historian with a successful garden design business based in central Lincolnshire. Janette’s talk, ‘The Sensual Garden’, explores the concept that a garden should be inviting, attracting you inside and appealing to all of your senses. Plants that are perfumed, sounds that are musical and even the spiritual feeling of a garden can be created with the right design and imaginative planting. All are welcome and there is a small charge of £3 to non-members.
