Our Annual Plant Sale takes place on Saturday May 4th and is held at St Michael’s Hall in Lichfield St. ST15 8BB. The sale starts at 9am and will close at 1pm – admission is FREE. A wide range of plants will be on sale from vegetables, bedding plants, basket and border annuals, hardy perennials; sweet peas to garden peas, begonias to beans, coreopsis to cabbage (well, you get the idea by now). Our members will be donating their surplus cuttings and young plants so the actual mix will depend very much on what has done well over the last few months. Further details are on our Events page.
The following Thursday – May 9th – is our normal evening meeting at Christ Church Centre in Stone at 7.45pm. Our speaker tonight is Dr Keith I Ferguson who will be talking about the North American plants growing in British gardens. Dr Ferguson worked in the USA for a number of years before moving to the Royal Botanic Garden at Kew where he worked for 29 years. It promises to be an interesting and possibly surprising evening.
