Evening Garden Talks - Container Gardening Thursday 14th June

Container Gardening - with Carolyn Foster

Pots and hanging baskets add colour and interest to a garden whether it is by a front door or on a patio. With suitable planting they can last a very long time. They can also be productive, especially when space is limited in the garden, by planting an attractive selection of herbs or salad crops.

A demonstration will be given of planting a hanging basket to give colour right through summer to early autumn. Containers will also be planted not only for summer colour and productivity, but also with a more permanent planting to give colour through the seasons.

The evening will include a drink and nibbles on arrival, choice of a main meal and a range of desserts.  Additional drinks (alcoholic and soft) will be available to purchase on the night.

The Cafe will open at 6.45 pm with the talk commencing at 7.00 pm.
