Our March Meeting is on Friday 2 March at 8.00 pm. Come along and hear Jacqueline Aviolet give a talk on the subject of “How I Started my Nursery”. Note this is a change from the published talk on the membdership cards. The Competition is a Spring Flowers in a Jug. With the warmer weather there should be plenty of flowers  in your gardens to select from.
