Spring has arrived at last and we are all very busy tidying up our gardens but perhaps we should make a point of leaving some corners of the garden not too perfectly tidied to provide habitats for wildlife. Paul Ritchie from the Surrey Wildlife Trust gave us very helpful suggestions in his talk to the society on the 21st March and made us aware of the ways in which we can adapt our gardens to accommodate wildlife – put up a bird feeder, make a pond, leave a woodpile or heap of leaves or plant nectar producing plants.
The Summer program has started and we look forward to a day outing to Hilliers Garden, Romsey on Monday 18th April. If you have missed this trip please look out for our future outings and activities.
Our next evening talk will take place in the Harrison Room of the Bookham Barn hall at 7.30 on Monday 23rd May where a representative from the Vineries will be giving us ideas for perfect Summer pots. Then we look forward to Village Day on the 18th June when we celebrate an amazing 140 years of the garden society. Do make sure you are planting and preparing for the Autumn Show on Saturday 10th September and if you need ideas a provisional show schedule is available from Angela.
Do come and join our varied activities. Members and non-members welcome. For more information please contact Angela Stevens on 01372456713.
