Its not all about Flowers – Stem and Foliage Interest

Monday 3 September 2018 @ 7:30pm to 9:30pm in South Marston Village Hall.

Speaker: Paul Green of Newent, Gloucestershire

Subject: “It’s not all about Flowers – Foliage and Stem Interest”

Paul is often asked “why don’t you like flowers?” Well he does, he loves them! The point is that flowers are not the only thing to get him excited. So many plants have interesting stem colour or texture. What about the range of berries? One of the main themes of plants he grows is for the range of foliage, its shape, size and colour. He’s hoping to tempt you too to try something new. There will be a large range of plants on show in the evening ranging from fairly common to rare and slightly strange!

Paul’s Nursery “Greens Leaves” is a specialist plant nursery which supplies a wide selection of choice, rare and unusual plants, all grown in their Gloucestershire nursery.  They have dedicated their nursery to a collection of rare and specialist plants from around the world and the list is growing.

At the end of the evening, you have the chance to purchase these rare and unusual plants.

Cost: £3 entry fee on the door or £12 for full Membership. A warm welcome awaits you along with tea and cake as well as an optional raffle.
