The march visit to Fosseway garden center was a great success and 32 members enjoyed a very informative talk by David Austin Rose rep. who also gave us a slide show. He covered every aspect of rose growing and caring. We were given a very generous 25% off of roses bought that day and I saw many members buying their roses. We also enjoyed coffee and cake . Fosseway have offered to host other talks or demos for our club and I will be contacting them for a possible one from a bulb grower to give information on spring bulbs.
The April visit will be to `the generous gardener ` at Ampney Crusis GL7 5RY. We visited here on a very hot June day 2017 and the garden was delightful being separated into rooms by hedging and Cotswold stone walls. We were made very welcome by our host and she served very nice refreshments. I have to confirm this but last year the cost was £7.50 some of which went to the delightful church which is next to the garden.I am hoping to get the church opened for our visit too as it is a very interesting one.Our host is not opening her gardens this summer as she has two family weddings being held there but has agreed to the April date for our group so a nice number of us would be appreciated. Please let me know as soon as you can if you would like to come. Also let me know if you would be traveling alone or joining in with car share meeting at the usual car park for 1.15pm we are due to start our visit at 2pm. There is limited parking so shared cars would be appreciated.
