I've inherited the family villa with a neglected garden, and am learning fast about plants that will thrive in this location! I'd say I'm an enthusiastic amateur, certainly no horticulturalist.
I've offered to organise a Gardening Group, starting next September. My ideas are very much along the lines of sharing knowledge and possibly other resources.
- Take turns to host in each other's gardens to exchange problems, tips, advice, seeds, cuttings, spare plants etc.
- Invite guest speakers e.g. Dick & Clodagh Handcombe (authors of 'Your Garden in Spain' and other books)
- Organise trips to visit gardens open to the public and other places of special interest.
