Next Gardening Club Meeting - "Gardens Worth a Visit"
Tarvin Webteam: Tuesday 10th Jul

February's demonstrator was traditional in her approach with some modern touches. Janet Hughes from North Wales loves her garden and walking her dog . This was apparent in her use of foliage from garden and woodland in all her designs. She told us as she worked of her experience at Christmas when she and her flower club were asked to decorate an area at Erddig Hall.

Design 1

Apart from the 1st arrangement the rest were packed with flowers. The woodland scene gave us a taste of spring.
Design 2 was topical for Valentine's day with tulips only used but she produced a stunning effect by using very deep red for most of the arrangement with double orange ones for the focal point.

Design 3

A very large glass container was used to good effect with 5 blooms of white chrysanthemums — simple and easy to copy.

Flower 4

Janet has access to large cans (as used in catering) so her containers for design 4 used these covered with place mats made of twigs. These were also white designs but were horizontal and included roses and lilies as well as chrysanthemums. The 2nd design she had done previously.

Flower 6

One of her modern ideas was to cover wreath rings with hessian and wool and attach them to her lovely green stoneware jug. Into this she put yellow lilies, orange roses with red edges and alstroemeria

Flower 5

For the final design which was another double one Janet stayed with the orange theme and used carnations lilies and roses. These designs stood on small metal tables.
When all were complete the overall look was fabulous. The photographs do not do the designs justice as I was on tea duty so rushed the pictures.
Our March meeting will be on the 9th when Katherine Jordan will show us her interpretation of "The Wow Factor" We always give a friendly welcome to visitors so if you feel like a relaxing evening with flowers do come along.

How could a council imagine this was a good idea?Thankfully, it remains a quiet by-way for walkers, cyclists...
