Best Borders – talk by Stuart Dixon – Fri 5th June 2015


We enjoyed an excellent, informative and at times humorous talk by our local horticultural lecturer, writer and broadcaster (incl BBC Radio Nottingham) last Friday. Stuart’s talk was supported by images of many borders which he has seen around the country, including a number of National Trust gardens. He used these to advise on the content and structure of borders, plus when to plant and prune many of our favourite herbaceous perennial border plants.

For our summer social, which is to include some refreshments, on the evening of Thursday 16th July 2015, we are scheduled to visit Stuart’s garden, which will no doubt provide us with even more inspiration for our own gardens.
