On Wednesday 13th November we look forward to a talk by Julie Henderson at the monthly meeting  in Kilmersdon Village Hall starting at 7.30pm.

Julie will be sharing her passion, expertise and enthusiasm of gardening with her talk on ‘The 12 plants of Christmas’, a festive look at our favourite Christmas plants.  This is a fun, informative talk looking at some of the folklore, history, botany, horticulture and interesting facts behind the plants which make up our Christmas festivities. 

Julie’s background includes working as a Horticultural Researcher for BBC Gardeners’ World, a Tour Guide at Sir Harold Hillier Gardens and nursery work at New Forest Lavender and Middlecombe Nursery.
