June 2022

On 9th June members had a guided tour behind the scenes of Katies Garden Plant Centre in Newbourne. In their greenhouses and on the nursery, they grow on a wide range of plants for sale at not only at the plant centre but at farm shops and other outlets across Suffolk. To the left-hand side of the sales greenhouse there is a demonstration garden where you can see plant combinations in situ, look at plants for dry areas or compare different lavender or salvia varieties growing side by side, to choose the right one for you. Well worth a look if you are there. Also, worth mentioning is that they will take any unwanted pots for recycling.

On 14th July the club are off to Otley Hall gardens. Well worth a visit with 10 acres of gardens including a knot garden, a mount for excellent views and my favourite a labyrinth. Meet there at 7. 00pm for a guided tour of the garden. £10.50 per person, refreshments extra.
Address Otley Hall, Hall Lane, Otley, Ipswich, IP6 9PA
