Coach trip to Holehird 7.10.2017

Nearly 30 members enjoyed a wonderful visit to the Lakeland Horticultural Society Garden at Holehird. Although rain threatened, it thankfully held off during the whole visit! Colour of autumn foliage and the many perennials was remarkable, as was the new conservatory in the walled garden which held many spectacular, but non-hardy, plants! There were also magnificent views looking over the fell towards Windermere. The visit ended with a stop in the town centre where many members acquired both useful and 'interesting' kitchen gadgets.

Thanks to the gardeners at Holehird and also to our Chairman, Delphine Price, who organised the visit superbly. Members are asked to recommend coach trips for next year.
