NOTE - this meeting starts at 7:15pm to allow time for the AGM
Andrew Ward. Norwell Nursery near Newark and AGM
Andrew is a much admired gardener and nurseryman and a great friend to many Nottinghamshire gardeners. His own garden is now in the Good Gardens Guide and his work is frequently written up in the gardening press. He has delighted us with his entertaining talks before and when we heard he was developing a new topic, we had to ask him to share it with us.
He will bring some of his early plant beauties to the lecture for sale.

‘Mountain Flowers of The Dolomites and How to Grow Them.’ David Charlton
David is another prestigious local horticulturalist and a trustee of Derbyshire Wildlife Trust. A career as a lawyer somehow led him to a passion for plants and he is now a keen grower and exhibitor of Alpines. His love of mountain species led him to co-authorship of "Mountain Flowers - the Dolomites" published in 2012 and to leading spring and summer wildflower walks in the region. He will also concentrate in his talk on how to grow these delightful plants.
