September 2017 - WI - Martin Roberts
Renhold WI meeting
7.30 pm 7th Sept 2017
Renhold Village Hall
Warm Welcome to all and three new members and visitors Pat Lindsay
Our speaker, Martin Roberts the Howbury Hall Gardener, did a fascinating talk about how to reproduce plants from cuttings and seeds and the best way to propagate plants. He showed us the equipment needed and the techniques, he also showed us how to grow plants from stones, the tops of pineapples and seeds.
Martin is obviously passionate about his subject and injected enthusiasm into every aspect of his talk. Many questions were asked about gardening issues and how to look after your plants and cuttings. I’m sure we will all have beautiful gardens next year as a result. Having seen the Roberts family garden in all its glory I can thoroughly recommend his advice.
