Wickhambrook Horticultural Society Reports

JUNE/july 2009

Our June monthly meeting was a talk about growing ferns in a Suffolk garden given by Mr Barry Stevenson from Cowlinge.  Mr Stevenson brought along slides to illustrate how, even in dry conditions and in heavy-clay Suffolk soil, ferns can thrive alongside other plants.  He had brought along some of his “home-grown” ferns and other plants for sale, always a popular move, and our members were soon buying lots of  his plants to give them new homes.

Members enjoyed two evening visits to very different gardens over the Summer.  The first was to Rushbrooke Hall, near Bury St Edmunds where we were taken around the gardens by the owner’s Head Gardener.  The gardens included a huge walled vegetable garden, formal gardens and an area of woodland.  Our second visit was to Mr and Mrs Pettitt’s house, Jonsyl - a very local garden at Ousden.  Their garden was lovingly (and very time-consumingly) cared for and we all much enjoyed this visit also.  We were very lucky weatherwise, with both evenings being truly Summer evenings and it was a real pleasure to visit two such delightful places.

Our gardening year re-commences with our monthly meeting on the 21st September - a talk on “Dahlias” given by Mark Mason and then on Monday 26th October a talk by Yvonne and David Leonard entitled “Highlights of our Botanical Expeditions”.
