Breckland Flower and Garden Club

Autumn colour

Barry Gayton visited the Club for the October meeting. His talk and slide show of autumn colour for the garden left most members wishing they had more room for all the shrubs and trees which give so many autumnal tints at this time of the year. As well as foliage he showed an array of orange, white and red berried plants which, of course, bring in the birds as well as being decorative.
The winner of the new hands competition and the monthly trophy was Alison Vivian, and the old hands class winner was Sylvia Briggs. Christine Hewson's photograph was first in the table show.
Next month's meeting will be on Thursday 8 November at Old Buckenham Village Hall starting at 12.30pm for a bangers and mash lunch to be followed by a Christmas workshop. For further details of what to bring with you, please contact Christine on 01953 454528. The competition title is 'Foliage and flames' - a foliage exhibit to include a candle - and the table show is for a collection of dried and/or preserved garden plant material.
