CLOWS TOP & DISTRICT GARDENING CLUB: November can be a damp, raw month. Flowers may be scarce in the garden but there are many berries, evergreen foliage and trees with decorative bark to add interest on the dullest of days. Frosts can be quite frequent at night, especially when it is calm and clear. Cold winds from the east will make it feel much colder than it really is. November is also the perfect time to plant new roses in a well prepared site and don’t forget your Spring Flowering Tulips. At the September meeting, Paul Cook from Cook’s Nursery Stourport, gave an interesting informal talk on how the business has progressed over the last few years. Other subjects were Hydrangeas, Garden Feeds, Grazers, and Box Blight to name a few. It was a lovely evening, a great success with everyone enjoying the talk.

It was also the clubs Autumn Show. The show winners were 1st Marion Wilson, 2nd Bob Marriott and 3rd Juliet Hole. Best Exhibit Marion Wilson, many thanks to Anne for judging the show.
