Our meeting this month was held in Trish’s Southminster home. In an afternoon of torrential rain we managed to find a dry spell in which to admire Trish’s garden, created from scratch in just four months. An immaculate lawn is framed by interesting seating areas and an impressive number of shrubs and perennials all growing away strongly.
The group’s discussions were wide ranging, as always. We shared tips on how best to nurture Camellias, bemoaned this year’s blackfly infestation, and over tea and Welsh cakes received invaluable advice on growing tomatoes and cucumbers. Carol told us how to keep our water butts sweet, and members offered other topical tips. Mary brought some of her tomato glut to share – another bonus of being a member of this group!
