The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
TGS: October 2016
Go into the third dimension at the Barbour Institute Wednesday 12th October 7:45pm
Monty Don reckons that October is the start of the gardening year. Well, that's true in Tattenhall, with the opening talk of a Tattenhall Gardening Society's season taking place TOMORROW.
Our first speaker, Jenny Hendy, will be taking us into the third dimension, talking about "Climbers and Wall Shrubs".
Jenny studied Botany at University and has put her love of plants, photography and wildlife into a very mixed career — garden designer, author, presenter and teacher/trainer. She has received numerous awards but loves passing on her knowledge, often being seen running adult gardening courses at the Grosvenor Garden Centre.
You may be a first time gardener or someone who wants a new challenge. Jenny's topic on Wednesday 12th October, 19.45 at the Barbour Institute, should give you ideas and advice that will apply to any garden. Say goodbye to boring walls and bare fence panels, particularly prevalent in new garden plots, and get some year round colours and textures instead.
Her website just hints at her interests and publications, so we are in for a good session. If you have time, check it out: www.jennyhendy.com
Admission is free for members but guests are most welcome to come along, with the modest entry fee including warm drinks.
You can renew membership or join for the first time on the night. The membership card has a full list of the season' s talks and can be used to obtain 10% off purchases at Okell's in Duddon and Walker's in Huntington.
