Village Green Gardening Club.

Stealing from the Garden was a magical tour of gardens all over Europe from Versailles in Paris to the lost Gardens of Heligan in Cornwall, and back to The Bay Garden in Camolin Co Wexford. The tour guide was Frances MacDonald a qualified horticulturalist who has developed and nurtured the Bay Garden and the occasion was the March meeting of the Village Green Garden Club in the Resource Cenree.
Frances MacDonal was a marvelous and knowledgeable speaker who showed how you can take ideas developed by other gardens and use them to greater or lesser degree in your own garden.
With the use of slides and a wonderful talk she had the gathering enraptured and we all went home feeling that we had been lucky to received a fund of knowledge and expertise.
The April meetingis on April 19, one week earlier than usual because of Punchestown. Jimi Blake will talk a bout plants and gardens of America with particular reference to Chanticleer Gardens near Philadelphia. Talk starts at 7.30 and those who are interested in the annual outing in June can sign up on the 19th.
