There are many possibilities in the topic of gardens, so we have set out some overall themes, along with some more specific ideas about how to grow and nurture our garden interests. We would like to hear what people think of these, and are open to other ideas as well – it is your group.
Our proposed themes are: Sharing practical tips, seasonal themes, types of plant, visiting gardens, garden design, practical work We will also make visits to gardens in the London area, and maybe to members’ plant containers, gardens and allotments.
Group Conveners : Mary Bailey, Sarah Dearman and Rebecca Harrington
The Group meets in various venues on the third Tuesday of every month, 10 – 11.30 a.m.
The Gardens and Gardening group was suspended in March, and our plans for the summer put on hold. However almost immediately a WhatsApp group was started for group members to join and exchange pictures, ideas and advice. This is well supported with some members undertaking doorstep drops while donating or swapping their plants. These activities are keeping up our interest in the flora (and occasionally fauna) of Crouch End and district.
