David's secret garden

Breckland Flower and Garden Club
Despite snowy weather many members enjoyed David Wright's excellent flower demonstration - My Secret Garden - at February's meeting of the Breckland Flower and Garden Club.
His containers included an old willow stump, a small fence, a little urn, a water butt and bucket, a large garden spade and a wheelbarrow. Red carnations, pink and yellow tulips, white eustoma, iris and veronica were used in his designs, highlighted with robins and even Peter Rabbit in the vegetable patch.
The month’s competition winners for 'Cupid's Arrow' - a modern design - were New Hands Alison Walker, and Old Hands Christine Hewson who also won the cup for the best exhibit.
The table show was for a houseplant and was won by Pat Poulter.
Next month’s meeting will be on Thursday 8 March in Old Buckenham Village Hall starting at 2pm. It will be the Club’s AGM and will be followed by a workshop. - please phone Christine on 454528 for list of requirements.
The March competition will be for an arrangement entitled 'Springtime and Driftwood' and for the table show you will need a pot of spring bulbs (any variety).
Visitors are always welcome to these meetings.
