La Visitation, Mayenne

Topic:  What to do with your Excess Harvest followed by Question/Answer session



1st Half – Discussion about what to do with excess harvest. Please come along and offer your ideas, and if you have any samples that would be good too. Many of us have favourites ways of preserving our fruit and vegetables and new methods are always welcome.

 Interval for refreshments.


2nd HalfGardeners' Question Time

We shall have a panel of “experts” who will try to answer all those questions that you keep asking yourself about your garden.

 PLEASE send your questions to Janet & Fred by 16th September at the latest

No questions are too trivial – remember that someone else may want to ask the same question but feels too embarrassed – so be brave.

If anyone is interested, BBC Gardeners World has a good website;  and the Gardeners' World magazine gives free access to a “What to do now” section. This is a week by week breakdown of things to do for fruit, flowers, veg, in the greenhouse and in the garden in general. There is also a “How to …” section.


Looking back

The inaugural get together took place on 19th April 2012 when 30 members gathered at David and Maryke’s home, to chat about what the club might do.
