Tattenhall Gardening Society February Meeting
Carol Siddorn, our local horticulturist based at Harthill, gave an illuminating talk about her passion for growing cut flowers and the techniques she uses in cultivating a wide range of popular garden blooms. She encouraged the audience to have a go at trying out different ways of achieving attractive displays in the domestic garden and to create a varied palette of cut flowers through spring, summer and early autumn.
