Talks and Events - 2016

What a great start to 2016!

After a great party in January for the launch of the new brochure, we have just had our first talk of the year.

We had a bumper turn out for Amanda Rew who  gave a marvellous talk on Herbs and their potent powers this week. It was so successful that  there was a resounding request for her to come back next year, with more examples of what we can do at home with so many of the plants in our borders.

Amanda is also looking for more hands on help in the Kennington Park flower garden, please let us know if you'd like to join in!

Keep digging



 Kennington Park

I hope that you have all seen the new flower garden in Kennington Park. Having recently reopened after a massive refurbishment, the breath taking planting has to be seen. But it's not just the planting, but the pond, paving, seating and entrances, all encourage any visitor to take some time to sit and relax or even take some photos of some fine specimens.  

The friends of Kennington Park have yet again excelled themselves with all their hard work in supporting such a major transformation of the park, please go and see it before winter sets in! 

Please get in touch if you'd like to be part of the gardening team!

Next Talk March 10th 2016 

After so many came to our first talk, I hope that March will be the same. So with spring in mind, what better than a talk from Linda Phillips from Roots and shoots, on propagation and how to make the what you have in the garden go further. Linda who is a gold multi gold medal winner at Chelsea and a constant favourite with the Garden Society, reminds us of all of the tips of the trade, so that we can share our best plants with friends, family and the plant stall at the Spring Show

Please support the evening and our friend from Roots and Shoots, our much loved local gardening based charity!

See you on the 10th!
