Wickhambrook Horticultural Society Reports

october 2005

Mr William Morris was our speaker in October. His talk was entitled "Propagating Cacti and Succulents from Seed" which, perhaps, does not sound particularly interesting or exciting. However, his talk and slides covered much more than the title suggested and the few members who were there all really enjoyed the evening. Mr Morris at one time was a teacher of biology and botany but he was not boring in any shape or form. He showed us some lovely slides and explained to us the delicate procedure necessary to progagate your own seeds. We were all left wondering whether or not we could be successful at something apparently so easy but yet so intricate. He also explained the many different ways that nature itself uses to propagate seeds. Altogether a very interesting talk, but it was such a shame that not many of our members were there.

We have two meetings in November. The first is on Monday 21st and is a talk entitled "Who wants to be a Gardener" given by Mr Richard Ayres who, until he retired, was the Head Gardener at Anglesey Abbey. We are hoping to attract many visitors for this talk and have written to nearby villagers. Mr Ayres is well known in this area and we are looking forward to his visit.

Then on Friday, 25th November we have our Annual General Meeting. Again we are hoping for the support of our members and others who are interested in our Society. The business of the evening is quickly over and is followed by cheese and wine.

We are trying to encourage more people to join our Horticultural Society and, if you have not been before, you would be very welcome at either or both of the above evenings. We are a friendly Society so no one need be nervous of attending for the first time.
