New group for a green-fingered chat
2:40pm Monday 9th September 2013 in Local
FOR people looking to enjoy a chat and gain some valuable gardening tips at the same time, a Lickey End garden centre has launched its own version of a Knit and Natter session, ‘Tea and Talk’.
The group which is being introduced at Littleheath Garden Centre, invited members of an established Knit and Natter group in Rubery, along to find out more about layered bulb planting, and enjoy a piece of cake.
The talk was held by one of the centre’s resident experts, who gave a demonstration for the group.
Barbara Hughes, from Knit and Natter, said: “This has been fantastic I’ve learnt lots of tips I didn’t know and will now go home and try.”
Liz Fraser from Littleheath Garden Centre, added: “We hope this is the first of many Tea and Talk sessions at Littleheath. Everyone had great fun and made new friends at the same time.”
The Tea and Talk group is set to take place monthly, on the first Wednesday of every month from 10.30-11.30am. the group is open to anyone from novice gardeners to experts, and October’s talk will be all about pruning, care and planting advice for roses.
Tickets are £5, and people don’t have to be part of a group to join, but they should call Ms Fraser on 01527 878174 or email email@example.com for a ticket.
