Christmas container planting with Alan Foxall + Jacob's join and Quiz, 11.12.17

About 40 members turned out on a freezing night to hear Alan, who gave us the benefit of his 46 years of experience at Southport Botanic Garden. His demonstration of how to plant containers for the festive season, as well as his humorous approach, were very much appreciated. He generously donated his exhibits to a free raffle.

Alan's inspiring talk was followed by a marvellous Jacob's join supper and a well-received plant identification quiz admirably introduced by Glenda Ostick.

Thanks to all members present for contributing a wide variety of delicious food (see image). The event provided a fitting way of drawing to a close an exceptionally successful 2017 programme. The image opposite shows Alan putting the finishing touches to one of his containers.
