Newsletter 139 - April 2022

Dear Members

Welcome to our Spring Newsletter!

I am sure you will find the contents of great interest - it reflects the fact that despite the huge disruption of covid, and a loss of continuity in our hard-working committee, that your Garden Club is still in good shape and looking forward to a more ‘normal’ summer. Our 2022 Zoom talks, first on greenhouse maintenance, then the three members' presentations evening, were very well received. Your Club now has a Group membership of the National Vegetable Society, and we have had an article about our club accepted for the Scottish Gardener’s Forum, to which we are affiliated.

Fertilizer and compost deliveries achieved very efficiently too: we are looking to ensuring future supplies are peat free.

As I write, Billy Carruthers is due to be our first speaker back in the Dreghorn Hall, at the end of March. Not only do we look forward to his expert presentation on peonies but he will be bringing plants to sell. The daffodil outing to Cringletie is soon to take place (now fully subscribed) and details of the May evening outing are on page 2.

At the end of April we hold our AGM, again in the hall, together with an exhibition aptly titled ‘A New Dawn’- featuring members work of any sort, created during lockdown. I am looking forward to a fascinating selection. See advert below.   

Then we have our Open Gardens Saturday morning visits, plant sale and coffees and teas on Saturday 18th June 2022 - we would appreciate donations of plants for the plant stall. Later in June, we will have the the much-anticipated summer outing to The Borders – full details on page 3 of the newsletter.... read on by clicking this link: April 2022.Number139
