From Radio Norfolk’s Saturday gardening show
Over the Garden Wall
Back by popular demand Joe will talk about walled gardens and what goes on behind those great walls. As Joe has just become head gardener at Burghley, he may be able to include something about this great garden.
Unfortunately Joe got his days muddled and did not turn up. However, those that stayed enjoyed a dvd on Sissinghurst gardens.
Plantswomen from Woottens of Wenhaston
The Iris Genus
This talk will cover the history, breeding, diversity and care of this fascinating genus.
Peregrine Project Officer Hawk & Owl Trust
A Talk about Sculthorpe Moor and the Norwich Peregrines
This should be an interesting talk as the Peregrines will be just about to start breeding.
History Beneath Your Feet
Not so much a talk, but a bit of banter looking at things (gardening objects) from the past in a new way. We will look at and handle recovered objects to discuss. If you have dug up an item of interest or can’t identify it bring it along.
It’s Christmas Party Time, starts at 7pm.
Images of Gardens Great & Small
This ‘talk’ should be very different with the main emphasis on the photography, with commentary and relaxing music in the background.
Walnut Tree Garden Nursery
Whilst winter is not quite with us yet, this talk will inspire us as to which plants to grow through this difficult period (some plants will be for sale).
Autumn Bag Sale
Please bring surplus plants in one or more bags to be sold at 50p per bag.
