Wickhambrook Horticultural Society Reports

January 2006

Our January meeting was held recently. Mrs Sylvia Allworthy from Burrough Green came along to tell us the story of how her garden - which we visited last year - evolved. About two dozen of us had been to her garden and I, for one, was amazed when she said that she had only been gardening there for eight years - when her and her husband moved from Devon. She had brought along various containers with lots of varieties of winter foliage, colour and perfume, all of them from her garden. Mrs Allworthy obviously loves her garden with a passion, and her passion filtered through to her audience and gave us all lots of ideas and inspiration for things that we could do in our own gardens. She advised us to forget particular "fashions" in gardening, and to concentrate on plants that we ourselves love. Everybody's garden is their own, to love and nurture, and that should be born in mind when planting a garden. She was warmly thanked by Stan Bates for a most enjoyable and interesting talk.

Jackie Fieldsend gave out details of two coach trips being planned in the Spring and Summer - one to Wisley on the 10th May and one to Sandringham Flower Show on the 26th July.

Jackie also asked members to think about the coming Flower Show in July. Our garden competion only had four entries last year and this year we are hoping to get lots more, so that it makes it worthwhile to ask a Judge to come and judge the particular gardens. It is only 20p to enter your garden, so hopefully we will get a lot more support this year.
