The Interesting Gardening Club

The joy of gardening in France
Supporting Open Gardens
Jardins Ouverts



Dear Members,

 This month we celebrated 15 years of the Interesting Gardening Club and thanks to the support from all our members, we are still enjoying talks, events and outings.

Lucy Sheppard spoke to us about her fascinating time studying the effects of Nitrogen on peat bogs. All such experiments take years to show results, need endless patience but in the end do have clear results. Thank you Lucy, it was absorbing.

Our May 9th talk will be Jacquie Strasser on ‘Plants that have changed our lives’ a well illustrated presentation as we have come to know from her, with many unusual facts and discoveries.

The June 13th coach outing is being researched and planned in May so full details to follow soon. The morning is to be spent at the unusual Jardins d’Eau water gardens with water lilies and the afternoon at Les Jardins de Cadiot in their 10 different gardens. 

The Special Interest Groups are up and running now, the year’s calendars will be issued soon and remember if you wish to join the Vegetable or Rose Group contact - Joy or Carelle. 

Open Gardens days are also starting and Carelle Sherwood needs kindly support for her day on June 5th. Anyone who would like to offer, details are on this email.

The warm spring seems to have pushed all our gardens to a superb show and brought out the butterflies and bees but also the weeds.

Wishing you all very happy Easter,

Cilla Pickett, President.
