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.

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.
