Wednesday, 26 February 2020 7.30pm Other

Uplyme Village Hall, Lyme Road, Uplyme, Lyme Regis, DT7 3UY

Speaker Marcus Dancer

Marcus will talk about all the different groups that make up the Clematis family and culminate the talk by looking at pruning in detail with a pruning demo. Plants for sale.

Marcus trained at Hillier Nurseries and has been growing and producing clematis plants for 20 years. He enjoys propagating and producing his own stock where possible and is always interested in growing something different and unusual but garden worthy.

Competition for summer show:

One potato tuber, grown in a container, both of which will be supplied by the Committee. The numbered container and potato will be available for purchase (£2.50) at the February meeting of the Society, and then from Committee members until all sold. No other containers will be acceptable. To be emptied at the show and judged on quality and weight.

Sponsored by River Cottage. Two prizes will be awarded: one for the greatest weight of potatoes; the second for best quality crop.
