Annual General Meeting

This year’s AGM was held on Thursday, 13th July, 2017 at ‘Garratt’s Farm’, Benington, by kind permission of Mrs Sarah Bott. The garden was open from 6.00pm when a glass of wine was served followed by the meeting at 7.00pm.  Members stayed for picnics.

Garratt’s farm has a garden of about three quarters of an acre in open countryside created from nothing over the last 10 years — with weeding, bending and watering avoidance the priority. Shrubs, small ornamental trees, box and yew are planted in groups to lead the eye to specific points or to fill the space which is surrounded by a field hedge.
