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, the club had its annual Autumn Show for members only.

The show winners were Marion Wilson, Madge Edwards and Kath Thornton.

Best Exhibit, Bob Marriott, many thanks to Anne for judging the show.
