Last night I went to a talk with Fergus Garrett about Great Dixter ( hosted by Southwell Garden Club). This garden was created by Christopher Lloyd.
Besides gaining an insight into plant design the evening was enjoyable because it provided a meeting place for gardeners.
Gardening is not a solitary occupation.
A lot can be learnt by being in contact with other people.
How else can we do this?
Allotments, garden clubs and voluntary garden schemes all fill the same niche.
Another idea is to get together and visit a well known garden.
We all need inspiration from others.
We also need a means of discussing problems .
Sometimes it may just be an opportunity to talk about something we all enjoy.
