July Meeting






            Lilium
                                                                               Tuesday 16th July 2019
                                            Topic - Chrysanthemums
                                           Presenter - William Orange

Today our very own member, William Orange, gave us a splendid presentation on Chrysanthemums. He informed us that even though it is the national flower of Japan, it actually originated in China. William went on to give us an interesting historical account of this beautiful flower, as well as a stunning digital display of the many different colours and varieties. He gave us a demonstration on how to take cuttings, and information on how to grow and care for them, as well as answering questions from the members. Thank you very much William for sharing your expertise with us. It is greatly appreciated.
