GARDEN INTEREST GROUP’s Spring Lesson.

thoughtful

These pictures tell their own story. Whitley WI’s Garden Interest Group visited the garden of Kath, a Park WI’s member.

Plant Discussion

Kath’s garden is described as a “plantswomen’s” garden. She has over 500 species/varieties of rare and unusual plants, which she has collected from many locations. These are carefully catalogued and she personally knows each one.
Our Members received a warm welcome and enjoyed coffee and homemade biscuits before starting the tour.
Garden maintenance was discussed: careful pruning, no hoeing and very little watering seem to keep the garden weed free.

A perfect watering system

The management of 3 on-going compost heaps was fascinating.
Kath propagates new plants, by taking cuttings and splitting, these she sells at many plant fairs, as well as for the National Garden Scheme when she opens her garden to the public in August.

Many thanks to Kath for our tour, and we hope to meet up with Park WI for a visit to a different location. Now a challenge to all garden group members…

…I have numbered all the plant photos…they need names….so email Pat with the names, and she will put them on to the web site!
