Gardeners Get Going

After an informative inaugural meeting in September of the new BEWI Gardening Club several members visited Jacqui’s garden.  The original visit had been delayed due to exceptionally high winds but the following day was perfect and with the sun shining, the light reflected off some wonderful vibrant blooms.  As we wandered around the garden everyone shared planting tips and particularly admired the vegetable garden with its raised beds.  Ruth, as promised, bought along her secateurs and we were given a master-class in how to prune a black current bush.  Ruth had challenged us to clean and sharpen our secateurs; have you used ketchup to clean your blades?  

As well as meeting monthly, the new club hopes to share information, plants and visit gardens.
