The 1st of March is not only St David’s Day, it also the first day of meteorological Spring and over in our Photo Gallery you will see some lovely Spring flowers starting to appear in our gardens thanks to the beautiful warm and sunny weather we have had over the last couple of February days – even if the nights have been rather frosty.
And as it is St David’s Day we bring you a daffodil (or two) in celebration.
There are several Zoom meetings planned for March – you can find details about this on our Programme page. – but here is a brief outline –
Monday March 1st – 2.30pm (rooms open 2.15pm) – Talk from Katherine Crouch (Chelsea Gold Medalist) – New tricks for old gardeners – Sponsored by Sutton Coldfield Ladies Gardening Club
