TUESDAY 2ND NOVEMBER 2021

 GARDENING WITH AND FOR WILDLIFE  

VICTORIA LOGUE



Our speaker for the evening is Victoria Logue. Victoria runs a nursery, Whitehall Farmhouse Plants. The subject for the evening is Gardening With and For Wildlife. Victoria has a keen interest in ecology in general and a special interest in encouraging beneficial insects in the garden. As a beekeeper herself, Victoria will be sharing her ideas for plants and horticultural techniques that help insects to help us.

Whitehall Farmhouse Plants, which was started by Victoria back in 2003, is a nursery situated high up in the Cotswolds where the plants are used to conditions which are likely to be much harsher than those in your garden.

Orders can be collected from Saturday 22nd May from Meadowbrook House, Caynham at a time agreed once your order is confirmed, together with directions if you need them. Payment preferably by cheque to Caynham Gardening Society. Because of road closures between Caynham & Knowbury and for those of you that will be away, I’m happy to hold on to plants for a short while. Julie Alviti (Burnt House Farm on the Little Hereford Rd) & Jill & Ray Bufton (Primrose Bank, just past St Mary’s Church Caynham, going up towards Clee) will also be running gate sales during the summer with contributions to the Garden Society. Gill Deaves has also given a couple of pieces of her wickerwork - photo attached: Wigwam - £10 Plant support - £5. The plant support needs ‘arranging’ once it’s in place.
