Foxton Garden Society March 2022

Our Wednesday 20 April meeting will host a talk by Nick Turrell. Nick is an award-winning gardening journalist who writes for The Sunday Times, the Daily Telegraph, The Guardian and the RHS Magazine. He has also worked on TV and radio programmes including Radio Leicester every weekend. The subject will be Tricks of the Trade of Garden Designand should be of particular interest to anyone who has recently purchased a ‘new build’ house and is looking for inspiration for their ‘blank’ plot. He will also include a reference to his ‘On Call Garden Doctor’ service, where he visits your garden for one hour, chats about the issues, offers design advice and writes a ‘prescription,’ which you can then take to the garden centre to get what you need as and when you are ready. Sounds an excellent idea!

(Please note – You do not have to be a members to attend any of our meetings – Visitors are always welcome for £3 per visit).

Wednesday 18 May sees the return of Janette Merillion who will talk about “The Sensual Garden” (an interesting title, especially if mis-read!). Janette is a professional speaker who regularly gives talks on cruise ships.

Please note this meeting will take place in the Lubenham village hall. If you would like a lift to the venue, or have any other questions please contact the Secretary Eleanor Fenn (01858 545414).
