Unfortunately our speaker this month, Ian Sandler, is unable to present his talk about one of the world's largest trading centres for plants and flowers at Aalsmeer in Holland.  However, another speaker, Jim Teague, an experienced nurseryman and plant buyer, has stepped in at the last minute and will give a practical talk on new and unusual plants we may find in the Garden Centre.


On Saturday, 10th February, the family of the late Doctors Lallie and Andy Cox will be holding a 'Snowdrops Open Garden' at 'Woodpeckers' in Marlcliff from 10.30am to 3.00pm.  A suggested donation of £3.50 per person will be split between the Garden Society and the Bidford History Society.  Refreshments available.  Just come along and enjoy the beautiful display of snowdrops and other winter garden features.  

Visitors are also very welcome to join us on Thursday, 15th February, when Frances Freeman, a well-travelled member of the Society, will entertain us with a talk entitled 'Japanese Gardens.'  There will also be a 'Bring and Buy ' Sale.  

All meetings are held in the Crawford Memorial Hall, Bidford on Avon, on the third Thursday of the month at 7.45 pm.  Non-members £3, including refreshments.  For further details please ring Annette Haines on 01789 268974.
