Wickhambrook Horticultural Society Reports

SEPTEMBER 2013

Jackie welcomed members to the September meeting and said how long it seemed since our last meeting in June and the Annual Flower Show in July. She hoped that everybody had enjoyed the lovely Summer and that their gardening had been successful. As usual there had been winners and losers in the garden year, but that is nature for you. It was good to get back into the routine of our monthly meetings and to catch up with people you had not seen for a couple of months.

She welcomed Mr Rodney Tibbs who has visited us several times before and this time he was talking and showing slides on vegetables for value. Mr Tibbs has gardened for many, many years and gave us tips and suggestions that he has learnt along the way but he said there is always more to learn from various sources, one of which is by talking and listening to other gardeners. Mr Tibbs said that with a bit of planning you should be able to enjoy the benefits of at least one vegetable from your garden throughout most of the year and that is what he aims for, using onions from storage or freshly dug leeks during the winter months, together with frozen beans of different sorts – even leeks can be frozen. He was warmly thanked by Dorothy Lightley.

Our October meeting on Monday 21st is a talk entitled "Deathcaps and Deadmans Fingers" given by Jonathan Revett. As usual this is in the W.I. Hall beginning at 7.30 and everyone is very welcome. £1 for members and £2 for non members.
