UPCOMING EVENTS

MARCH TALK

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.

COACH TRIP TO WOBURN ABBEY GARDENS

I already have 49 people signed up to go on our trip to Woburn on Sunday 4th June, so please can I have payment in by the end of March.  This way I can offer any spaces to people on the waiting list.  The cost of the trip is £20 to members and £25 to non members.

EVENING VISIT TO THE ECHIUM GARDEN, EDWINSTOWE

 We are following up the very interesting talk on echiums by Linda and Ray Heywood, with an evening visit to the Echium Garden at 7pm on Wednesday 17th May.  We will be given a short talk about the history of Edwinstowe House and the garden, a tour of the garden and refreshments.  The cost of the visit will be £5 for members and £8 for non-members.  Again all are welcome, but you need to sign up and pay me beforehand, as they need numbers in advance.

If you would like more details, don’t hesitate to contact me via the website.
