– NO MEETING IN JANUARY –
Next Talk – “Potato Growing” by Alan Watson
Monday 4 February 8pm, Wisborough Green Village Hall
The recent talk about Dahlias was well attended. Our speaker, Paul Dalby, gave us a very thorough talk on the history of Dahlias, the many different types and lots of cultural information. Paul mentioned Collarette Dahlias – they are especially good for attracting bees and pollinating insects, so really good for the garden. Let’s hope it has inspired many of us to grow these lovely flowers and maybe, just maybe, to enter the classes in the August Show! The evening was accompanied with mulled wine and mince pies.
This meeting replaced the talk about Potatoes – this is now scheduled for Monday 4th February.
We were sorry to learn George Goodchild died recently – he had been a stalwart member and past chairman of the society.
A very Happy New Year!
