The joy of gardening in France
Supporting Open Gardens/Jardins Ouverts




Dear Members,

What a great start to the New Year! A new venue and a great talk by Erica Laine. From a balcony in Hong Kong, filled with tropical plants to a garden lovingly created from scratch, here in France. A huge amount of research and hard work went into producing this garden and we all enjoyed the journey. Thank you Erica.

On Thursday, March 14th we have the AGM. Knowing how much you all love these, I am attempting to make it more interesting. It will be, hopefully, paperless and illustrated! 

We are always looking for new committee members. Although we are a great team, there are times when several members are away for various reasons, leaving us short handed. If you are not a committee person but could offer help at talks, setting up etc., I would love to hear from you. 

The AGM will be followed by a GARDENER’S QUESTION TIME. A team of knowledgeable gardeners will try to answer your questions. Please send your questions to me in advance, by Sunday 10th March please. Subjects that will hopefully spark some interest with everyone?

Also, this month sees the start of this year’s VEGETABLE GROUP. We have decided to meet early to discuss our plans, order seeds and swap ideas for the coming season. 

The meeting will be at Chez Vignas on Tuesday, 26th February at 3pm. New members always welcome, please contact Joy Collett if you would like to come along, 

Hope you are all enjoying this wonderful weather out in your gardens.

Best wishes

Cilla Pickett, President.
