On Thursday, Sept 12th, members of our garden group visited Meynell Langley trial gardens and nursery, near Kedleston Hall west of Derby – only about 40 mins away. We were all impressed by the setup there and we enjoyed the walk and talk given by Robert Walker who runs the place. He proved to be a very knowledgeable and interesting guide and many of us decided that we would visit the place again next spring especially to buy plants for our containers and baskets. Our October event, on Thursday 10th, is a plant and seed exchange, hosted by Elaine Walker. This gives members an opportunity to exchange or buy “spare” plants and seeds from their gardens.
