Garden Outings in 2016
In May, we visited R & R Saggers Nursery in Newport to hear about its development over the years. Roger & Roz kindly provided us with refreshments & both took groups around the Nursery pointing out interesting features. In addition we were invited to explore the lovely garden next door, which is maintained by Roger.
In June we braved torrential rain & thunder, as we were shown round the beautiful garden at Parsonage House, Helions Bumpstead by the owner, Mrs Annie Turner. Despite the weather, the members were delighted to have the opportunity to see the wildflower meadow, stunning borders and unusual plants.
We were treated to an enjoyable & informative tour of Clare College Garden, on a July evening, when Steve Elstub, Head Gardener, told us the history of the garden, as well as some of the difficulties faced by his team, when trying to maintain the garden alongside university events!
Do please come and join us!
