Evening Garden Talks - Extending the Season Thursday 12th July

Extending the Season in your Border - with Carolyn Foster

Garden borders are usually a riot of colour in June and July, but August and even September can be difficult months to keep the ‘show ‘ going until the autumn colours take over.   With careful choice of plants and spacing to take over from early flowerers, late summer can be as vibrant as early summer.

A border arrangement for the extended season will be demonstrated using plants from the Nursery and plant maintenance for best performance will be discussed.

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.
