Our next meeting is on Tuesday, 10th May at 8pm in the Edna Rose Room of Tarvin Community Centre, Meadow Close.
Each year at the AUGUST HORTICULTURAL SHOW, there is a special members' class where the ability of our members to nurture a geranium plant is put to the test. At the May meeting, all of the members will be GIVEN a small geranium to grow on and to encourage into magnificence by mid-August. All of the plants are identical – so the difference in August will be a clear demonstration of the love and succour provided by the member!
Come along and collect your FREE geranium at this meeting!
This month we are to have a fascinating talk that will be given by Linda Webb:-"The story of Hoole Allotments."
Linda is a keen local historian and the Chairman of Hoole Gardens and Allotments Association. Horticulture in Hoole has a long and rich history – the allotments have been in use for a century or more – and Linda's talk will cover both the heritage and the history of the allotments, as well as growing on the allotments, and life there today amidst a strong and vibrant colony of allotmenteers. There was a time when Tarvin had its own allotments. Linda's talk will show us what we are missing!
Tea, coffee and biscuits are to be served afterwards.
