Christine Vick, of the National Herb Centre, gave a lovely talk on herbs at a recent meeting, including their uses and their history, which was very interesting.
The Centre sells about 40 different types of Mint, about 20 different lavenders and countless 'flavours' of marjoram etc. Beautiful herbs, and an insight into how many garden flowering plants are actually used for herbal infusions, the medical and the perfumery worlds.
With Spring around the corner, John Gibson of the RHS helped members to make the most of their bulbs at our last meeting, in preparation for our Spring Show and Bulb Competition on the 11th April!
All members, guests and visitors are welcome
