The next meeting will be on Wednesday 5th September
The Speaker will be Ben Potterton, with a talk on scented plants;
Aromatic plants bring an extra dimension to a garden: an unexpected waft of scent can stir emotions and be calming or refreshing. The key when designing your garden is to avoid focusing on just one element. If you focus only on scent, for example, you may end up with a bed of too many different colours, forms and foliages, which can look overdone. Think about balancing scents, shapes, foliage colours and flower colours, keeping in mind when each plant will be in bloom during the year. With Ben’s vast knowledge he will inspire us on the best ways to have scent in our lives.
The meetings are held in the Kier Suite at the Eco Hub on the first Wednesday of the month at 7.30pm. No meetings over the summer.
Visitors are always welcome.
