If your club or garden group is looking for a speaker, Christine Dakin, with 25 years horticultural experience of both growing and professional gardening, is normally available.
"Gardening on Clay" - some plants which are unhappy in clay soil but many more that are; based on 10 years gardening at Bridge Nursery in Warwickshire
"My Life as a Jobbing Gardener" - Reminiscences of people, places, gardens and gardening quirks
"Beautiful Borders" - a general pot-pourri talk
"Extending the Season" - no need for you garden to be dull after spring: plants for mid-summer to late autumn
"Winter Gardening" - things to do and plants to enjoy in the winter months
"Grasses and Bamboos" - grasses and bamboos to grow and not to grow! plus how to care for them.
Talks take the form of a lecture illustrated with slides and last between 30 to 60 minutes.
Alternatively, we welcome group evening visits during the summer months, please contact us for details.
Sadly we shall cease to be able to give talks after 2012
