The topic for Tarvin Gardening Society's meeting in the Edna Rose room of Tarvin Community Centre at 8.00pm on Tuesday, 20th September, is "Flowers of Cutting," which will be presented by Christine Davies.
Christine Davies and her husband Paul have lived at Fieldcrest, at Thornton Hough in the heart of the Wirral Peninsula, since 2004. There they have used about one and a third acres of flat, south facing land to create a garden that is pleasant to look out on, to spend time in, and, while attracting wildlife, allows them to grow their own fruit, vegetables, herbs and flowers. In this talk, Chris will use her experience of an established cottage garden to describe how to create a cutting patch of cut-and-come-again flowers to give you lots of blooms for months at a time and will be able to recommend good shrubs, perennials and other plants for both foliage and flowers.
Membership of the Tarvin Gardening Society costs very little — just £5 per year. Members then pay just £1 each time they attend a meeting. Non-members are always welcome at our meetings and pay £2 each time. A hot drink and biscuit will be served afterwards.
Membership includes the benefit of a 10% discount on plants, seeds, composts, pots, etc. at Okell's Garden Centre on production of their membership card.
