Tamsin Westhorpe was excellent

We thoroughly enjoyed Tamsin Westhorpe’s presentation last night on her experience Editing “The English Garden and The Edible Garden” magazines.Also her time being Director of Stocktonbury Garden.Her enthusiasm and love for gardening shone through,everyone had an enlightening evening into how these quality magazines are put together.We now appreciate the highly pressurised processes involved a little better.

Final arrangements were put in place for our May 18th Outing ,also the Outing on July 9th to The National Botanic Gardens of Wales.Lets hope we have such lovely weather then !


Abergavenny Garden Centre sponsor new Competition

Through the kindness of Ian MacDonald of Abergavenny Garden Centre we will have a new Childrens competition at our Annual Members Show on Saturday September 5th.The nursery have provided the same type of a Maincrop Seed potato for each entrant.The crop that has then grown will be raised and weighed to see who has won the newly donated Cup in this class.

All the donated potatoes were distributed at last nights meeting,very many thanks to Ian and everyone involved in this forward thinking idea.
