Greetings to all gardeners battling with the beasts outside! Do you get aphids on your apples, bugs in your buddleia or caterpillars on your cabbages? Would you like to find the answer to all of your 'Flower, fruit & veg problems',

Then a talk from Dr Steve Reynolds on 27th October 2015 at 8.00pm at Tarvin Community Centre might just do the trick!

Dr Steve Reynolds (or Steve as he is known to his gardening friends) is one of the Shropshire and West Midlands region's experts on plant problems, principally garden pests, diseases and disorders. Now retired after more than 35 years as a research plant scientist and University academic, he is in the process of completing a massive computer database on his expert subjects, used by many gardening celebrities and writers, garden centres and award winning nurseries.
He is a very popular speaker on the circuit, travelling widely; lecturing and running the "What's Up Doc?" Plant Clinics at flower shows around the UK. He has featured at Gardener's World Live, Southport Show, the Llangollen Gardening Show and Midlands' Summer Gardeners' Weekend.

If you have a problem that he can't answer, you are a very unusual person indeed!
