September 2013 meeting.

This months speaker was Tim Carter, from Longhouse Plants. He has a nursery which grows & sells hardy plants, it is situated in Noak Hill, Romford. They are now closed, and looking forward to a well earned holiday. They re-open in March.
The hall begins to fill up.
Tim speaking about one of his plants. 

As you can see, he brought a lot of plants with him, all of which emphasized the amount of colour which can still be around at this time of the year. He gave a brief account of his career at the start of his talk.  A short introduction to each plant was given as he moved along the table.
A lot of plants.
During the interval the raffle was called and members were able to purchase the plants, still having time for their cuppas and biscuits. 
Before Tim continued with his talk, Peter reminded everybody about the outings and the necessity of paying the balance of the costs at least 3 weeks before, as the coach operators need their money earlier now.
After the break Tim continued with his talk, advising which plants go together to give the maximum impact, also telling us about how he uses the various grasses in his garden.
It was a most informative and entertaining evening, the time passed all too quickly and it was soon time to go home.
