Jacky and Di choosing plants

Fourteen of us went to Tattingstone Garden Centre on a cool but dry evening in May. We had come to create our own planted hanging basket or tub, choosing and using some of the wide selection of bedding plants available there.

First of all Lorraine and Brandon between them gave us a demonstration whilst telling us about the different plant foods, irrigation systems and types of compost available. Then we were set free to do our own thing, and we enjoyed filling our own containers to produce both colourful and attractive results.

Teas, coffees and cake were served, and after some more informal questions and answers we paid for our trophies and left.

Thank you to Lorraine and Brandon for a most enjoyable and productive evening! Tattingstone Garden Centre is well worth a visit!
