Summer Garden Coffee Mornings, 2013

Three coffee mornings have been arranged this year and we are grateful to everyone who offered to host one. They start at 10:30am and finish at 12:30pm. The cost is £2 (includes coffee). The person holding the coffee morning may also ask for a contribution to, or sell plants for, their favourite charity.

Tuesday 7 May

Christine & Chris Ealing, Glazenbridge Lodge, Shrawley, WR6 6TG

Christine and Chris Ealing have lived at Glazenbridge Lodge for eleven years. Their delightful two acre terraced garden with a wood (and deer) is well worth a visit. Christine wrote an article telling us how the garden had developed and is still developing, and the last instalment is in the Spring Newsletter 2013. If anyone has any photos from the coffee morning to put on this page, please send them to the webmaster.

Wednesday 12 June

Wendy Martin, 84 High Street, Pershore, WR10 1DU

This four year old walled garden is 60 metres long - the majority laid out as borders and paths in cottage garden style. The remaining productive area has raised vegetable beds and fruit bushes and a greenhouse full of pelargoniums. Crossing the garden is a formal rill surrounded by iris, roses, honeysuckle and clematis. The garden is still changing and improving, usually involving more beds and less lawn to accommodate the owner’s growing plant collection.

Thursday 4 July

Hilda & John Watts, 20 Throckmorton Road, Alcester, B29 6QA

John and Hilda Watts, both plantaholics, have created this small colourful garden over many years. Herbaceous borders, alpine and scree beds, pots and containers all contribute to the scene. Flowering shrubs provide spring colour in the shade area, together with clematis and roses. Gravel beds and lawn make the edges flow.
