November 2012 Open Meeting Report

The last open meeting was held Tuesday 20th November in the back room of the village hall. The meeting was attended by fifteen members bravely conquering the mud that engulfed the village that day – we are used to it we are gardeners.

The presentation was by RHS Listed speaker, Rodney Tibbs, journalist, author and contributor to a number of publications on garden topics.

The subject of his presentation was, “Patio Gardening and Gardening in Small Spaces”.

He focused on small gardens and small areas of larger gardens. As modern gardens get smaller and smaller, the lot of a gardener can be a frustrating one. Rodney concentrated on three areas, plans and ideas, methods of growing plants suitable for pots and patios, and some finished schemes.

No doubt members will be developing many of his examples into their own gardens next year.

Refreshments were provided by Ann Ford & Chris Maxfield.
