It should be the Chelsea Flower Show this coming week but it has had to be put back to the autumn. However Virtual Chelsea will be happening from Tuesday 18th – Friday 21st (Monday 17th if you are an RHS member). You can find out more and follow the links here.
We have two more talks for you this month through the Tender Shoots Garden Club Network – the last one sounds particularly fascinating, especially if you remember watching Monty Don’s programme a few years ago.
Wednesday May 19th at 7.30 pm – Talk from the National Arboretum Alrewas – Sponsored by Penkridge Garden Guild
Wednesday May 26th at 7.30pm – “Gardens of Paradise” (This talk covers the history, design and symbolism of Persian/Islamic/Moghul gardens). Talk from Adrian James. Sponsored by Evesham G&C.
Further details on how to join the talks (via Zoom or You Tube) along with lists of plants or gardens you can download can be found on the Programme page.
The Plant Swap in Barlaston for today (Saturday 15th) has been cancelled as the weather forecast is not promising.
