It was good to be back in the Parish Hall, the chatter showed how much we had missed this! Nineteen members and one visitor came along to hear Paul Jupp.. Paul from Meadow in my garden told us how to plan wildflower areas. Meadow in my garden is a community interest-based company and supplies seeds to individuals but also to projects in the community, 98% of wildflower meadows have been lost since the second world war so it is imperative to replace this loss. The flowers help our pollinating insects and brighten up our landscape and gardens. The best time is to plant the seeds in prepared, cleared areas in September and October although early spring is not too late, flowers coming 6-8 weeks after sowing in April. No area is too small or too large, too sunny, or too shady, there are different seeds to suit all types of areas and soil types. Why not try some in your plot!
The next meeting is Thursday April 7th. Peter Biggs from Wanborough Nurseries will be talking Herbs. He will be bringing along plants to sell too.
The Hall is open from 7.00pm for refreshments and a catchup before the speaker at 7.30pm.
