September Meeting

As always, Paul Green from Greens Leaves Nursery, Newent, gave us an informative and amusing talk.

Paul brought a lovely selection of his latest plants which he discussed pointing out the new characteristics that breeders have developed, such asĀ  their drought tolerance, floriferousness and suitability to pots. He informed us as to where and when best to plant and how to care for them in pots, which, he advised us should be as big as possible with a lining of polystyrene to insulate against cold and heat. Paul cautioned us that if we wrap our potted plants during a cold snap in winter to be sure to unwrap when it warms up to allow air to circulate around the plant.

Paul’s talk was full of interesting facts and witty remarks as well as introducing us to new selections of some familiar plants.

We all left with a smile on our faces and some with several purchases!
