The June 9th meeting featured guest speaker Katie Lowe of Heathfield Orchards. She gave a talk about orchards and fruit trees. In an enjoyable and entertaining style Katie covered a lot of aspects of growing fruit trees in our gardens. Some aspects covered were the selection of varieties to grow, the reasons behind the choices and the cultivation and care of the trees.

She gave us a particularly clear and reasoned description of how to prune fruit trees. Pruning is something that many of us struggle with, and this will be helpful.

 

Katie and her husband run Heathfield Orchards, Tarvin Road, Littleton, Chester CH3 7DF

They sell fruit trees, especially traditional Cheshire heritage varieties, and more.

We expect a very good turnout to see Chris, and recommend that you contact Elaine without delay to secure your ticket.

You will know Chris's style from Gardener's Question Time on Radio 4. He combines a very wity and light manner with impressive in-depth knowledge of his subject.  The picture

shows the Morgan Stanley

sponsored garden for Great

Ormond Street Hospital.

This is Chris's latest project

to feature at the Chelsea

Flower Show. Designed

and built by Chris and his

team this Gold winning

garden will be transferred

to a permanent site at

Great Ormond St. after

the show.  

The title of Chris's talk will be ‘The English Garden’

He describes it as an illustrated talk which details a bit about the history of the English Garden, essential components within the gardens and then details some of the schemes we have implemented from schemes from English Heritage (Carsibrooke Castle) to gardens in New Zealand & Japan which are very English in their style.

The July meeting on the 14th featured guest speaker Steve Wright of the Japanese Garden Society. His talk was entitled "My Japanese Garden" (In Hazel Grove). Steve gave us an interesting talk about how he converted the conventional garden of his semi into a Japanese garden.

With much effort over many years Steve has created a garden to be proud of, and he occasionally opens it to the public in support of local charities.
