Birmingham Branch

Post by Andyh » Wed Mar 13, 2019 9:00 pm

This Tuesday 19th March, Paul Spracklin is talking about gardening with succulents! Hopefully it will inspire us all to try growing more out of doors. There is a £2.50 charge to attend which includes free tea and biscuits. A great chance to share experiences and learn more. Regular monthly meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month (except December’s meeting). All visitors welcome.
7.00pm for 7.30pm start at:

Winterbourne House & Garden
University of Birmingham
58 Edgbaston Park Road B15 2RT
(In classrooms behind...entrance immediately beyond Winterbourne carpark entrance)

We dont show plants at present but you are always welcome to bring plants to show off...perhaps something in flower.... or ask questions about. I am bringing a few cuttings to give away and have a few large bulbine plants, hottentot fig, aloe arborescens and lampranthus to sell. The first two are hardy (ish).
Plant sales are a bonus and we also have a great cacti library that can be used by members.

Are you going to share any tips on social media? We put our plants outdoors for summer. I'm about to start a thread for suppliers of hardy succulents that can be planted out all year. We have some already but need a lot more as we have replaced our cottage garden with an arid style / Beth Chatto gravel style garden.
