Guest Speaker: Pip Bensley Title: Garden Snippets

Tonight the Club invited guest speaker, Pip Bensley, who is an award winning floral designer, to give us a talk entitled Garden Snippets.  Pip is an expert on plants having worked for the specialist nursery at Hilliers.   She started as a plant area assistant but was moved up right through the company over 27 years and finished up in the exciting position of Plant Buyer for the group of centres.  Therefore, her knowledge, and in particular, concerning the right type of plants to grow in your garden for flower arranging was extremely captivating and informative.  The members and visitors watched  Pip's slideshow of wonderful looking foliage which gave us all the inspiration to look at our own gardens in a new light.  One of her comments at the end of the talk was, "Don't feel despondent if a plant has failed in your garden, look on it as an opportunity to get a new and interesting plant for your flower arranging".

Our next virtual demonstration via Zoom is on Thursday 20th May at 7.45pm.  The demonstrator is Susan Tausig and the title is 'Bright and Beautiful'.  Visitors are very welcome for a fee of £3.00, for more information please email:
