Spring 2007 Talks Programme

Added on 12 March 2007

The Gardens Group has launched an extensive programme of Spring Talks after many customers asked for specific advice and information on gardening challenges!

"In the early years of running Castle and Brimsmore Gardens we used to hold talks each month and sometimes we had as many as 300 people attending," explained Mike Burks, MD of The Gardens Group. "As many of our customers have requested that we start the talks again, we've put together a Spring Programme which we hope will be both interesting and entertaining. The talks, which will be free to attend, are an opportunity for people to ask questions both to our experts and of course other gardeners attending."

The Gardens Group already gives over 130 talks to gardening clubs, allotment societies and Women's Institutes each year. The team of plant experts from The Gardens Group will cover everything from selecting, planting, growing, feeding and nurturing plants as well as giving practical information on container gardening, designing borders and beds, garden remedies and planning a low maintenance garden.
