Gardening Group Two

Haskins Garden Centre

Our visit in March to Haskins Garden Centre was surprising, they have temporary buildings while the new premises are built and a huge restaurant serving delicious treats.  We all bought plants, then despite rain we went on to Nymans, for a tour of the house and the gardens with spectacular magnolias, camellias, hellibores, heathers and bulbs, followed by more refreshments. 
 
Later in March a few of us visited Hadlow agricultural college with the Fuchsia and Pelargonium Society for a guided tour of a very large area, planted in a variety of styles, mostly for the students to learn techniques of horticulture, the Japanese garden will soon by opened, hellibores and dogwoods were gorgeous, and we all want to return later in the year. 
 
Email the group for more information if you wish to meet at each other's gardens to swap ideas and plants, solve problems and chat over Thursday afternoon tea. We will be making other visits together during the summer.
