What beautiful weather we have had over Easter; enough to make you want to get out in the garden and plant things!
If you need inspiration why not try visiting one of the National Garden Scheme open gardens in Sussex. the Old Vicarage in Washington, for example ; open every Thursday or the Garden House in Warleigh Road Brighton which is open this coming weekend (23rd and 24th April) - but check in case you need to book.
The NG cheme raises money for charity and we will be bringing some NGS booklets to the meeting on 27th April for more information.
The garden centres are now full of plants but why not try visisting a few 'home grown' nurseries nearby. With our carbon footprint to think about, how much nicer it is to buy plants by local growers as opposed to those off a Dutch lorry. Try Orchard Nursery and Plant centre in East Grinstaed, Pelham plants near Laughton in East Sussex or Landsdown Plants on the Littlehampton Road , Ferring , Worthing.
Don't forget if you are growing seedlings at home - and have too many we will have a plant swap table at our next meeting.
