Hardy exotics in Old Buckenham

Breckland Flower and Garden Club

The Club ended July with a visit to Mickfield Hostas on what was a very hot day. Several members made the journey and had a very enjoyable time exploring the nursery and buying a selection of hostas. 
The attendance at the August meeting was low mainly because of holidays and a clash of date with the NAFAS Diamond Anniversary celebrations in London that several members were attending. Those that were able to attend enjoyed a talk by Richard Clark of Panache Plants entitled ‘Hardy Exotics’. Richard delivered an excellent talk, encouraging members to ask questions. He managed to captivate everyone with his enthusiasm for the plants and his wealth of knowledge that he was happy to share. He also brought along a selection of plants for members to purchase. There were no entries in the monthly competitions but members still enjoyed the raffle and refreshments. A special thank you to Sally Westrup for holding the fort and making sure everything ran smoothly with the absent of so many members.
The Club’s next meeting is in Old Buckenham Village Hall on Thursday 12 September at 2pm with a talk by Sarah Hammond titled “Peonies”. The competition is “Summer” using last of the garden treasures with the Joan Fisher trophy for best use of colour
