Wickhambrook Horticultural Society Reports

JUNE 2008

Our monthly meeting on Monday 16th June was a talk given by Frances Mount on ‘Hardy Bulbs throughout the year’. Mrs Mount brought along some beautifully photographed slides of bulbs throughout the year. Most of them, but not all, were from her own garden. Some of the slides were of fairly common bulbs, but many of them were rare. Lots of them were not suitable for our heavy, sticky clay soil, but she gave us tips on the conditions that the bulbs need to grow happily. She was warmly thanked for her interesting and informative talk.

On Thursday, 26th June, an evening visit to Linda Draper’s garden had been arranged by Dorothy Lightley. Only six of our members were able to attend this visit, but Linda did not mind that not many of us could visit her garden. Linda had been one of our speakers in 2007 and at that time she had demonstrated how to take cuttings of our favourite plants. Her garden is gorgeous and her plants are obviously loved and cared for tremendously well. She is so enthusiastic and shares her vast knowledge freely. After we had enjoyed our stroll round the garden and Linda had answered many, many questions, she invited us into her kitchen for tea and coffee and a taste of two dishes she had made using ingredients from her own garden. We just got inside the kitchen before it started to rain, which did not matter at all because we had all enjoyed our evening.
