Members of the Gardening Group met on 22 February 2024 for a monthly winter meeting.
On the agenda was Winter Pruning techniques for Roses, Clematis, Dogwoods, Buddleia and Soft Fruit canes. There was a strange weed to be identified which was found to be more common than we realised in the group – in the end it turned out to be a ‘milkweed’.
There was then a report on seed germination where the seeds had been saved from last summer, a report on ginger and garlic propagation, and a discussion on the price of seeds at various local outlets, and some plans for displays. Problems with a Christmas Cactus also led to a lively discussion!
This is a lively group and it is now planning a visit to a nursery area north of London for its April Outing.
