                                            Presenter - Peter Douglas

Today's presentation was given by Peter Douglas from Scotsburn Nurseries. Peter was originally going to speak to us about hanging baskets but the presentation morphed into a very interesting and informative talk about potting mixes. Peter also spoke about the history of Scotsburn Nurseries and regaled us with some amusing stories. Thank you Peter for your time and expertise and for answering members' many questions.
