                                                  Topic - Container Plants
                                                    Presenter - Earl Pike

Today's speaker, Earl Pike, gave us a wonderful talk on how to grow plants in pots and containers, as well as some interesting and creative suggestions, such as using old tyres. He spoke to us of the best types of potting mix to use and he generously gave out products to some of the members as well. Earl also spoke about hanging baskets and shared some simple but innovative ideas. He was happy to answer member's many questions on the subject and also had some amusing stories to tell. Thank you Earl for a very entertaining and informative presentation.

This month the award for the best exhibit went to Christine Phillips for her magnificent basket of large crimson Roses. Congratulations Christine on a truly stunning display!
