November Meeting

To our November meeting we welcomed John Griffiths from Tal Goed Nursery. He brought along a lot of plants for use in pots and baskets that will tolerate the cold temperatures during the winter month and houseplants like poinsettias,cyclamen and azaleas to name a few. He planted up a hanging basket and tub and gave us some useful hints and tips on how to care for your outdoor and indoor plants.
The competition, a small vase, was won by Chris Thomas, 2nd Barbara Evans and 3rd Averil Jones.
