A lovely group of ladies keen to learn all about growing their own cutting patch.
Over tea in the polytunnel, we all introduced ourselves, discussing individual gardens, and plans for growing flowers for the house.
This was followed by an in depth session covering all the main aspects of growing for a great variety of stems to cut, over a long season.
A tour around the beds, with plenty of chance to discuss varieties grown, seasonal interest and cultivation tecniques...
And then tea and cake, over the seed packets, and everyone sowed their choices of annuals in a large plug tray to take home to grow for their gardens.
