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.

"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.

Christine can bring her own projector and screen if required, as well as a number of plants to illustrate the talk and which will be for sale.

The current cost is £50 for the talk plus 45p per mile travelling costs measured from Napton.
