Exploring Gardens
7th April
41 Shelvers Way

This was our first visit of the year to a small garden in Tadworth owned by Elizabeth and Keith, a lovely elderly couple who have been gardening here all their adult lives. They were very keen horticulturists entering shows with their rare narcissi and cyclamen bulbs. Never stinting on the bulb costs their flowers are unusual and beautiful.
There were 17 of us, a good turnout for a cold blustery afternoon. Keith was a interesting host giving us top tips to improve growing our own bulbs. The garden had been a lot larger, extending to a back garden twice the size with fruit tress but half the garden was sold off a few years ago for housing.
Tea and delicious home made cakes by Elizabeth were served in their conservatory, £170 was collected for charity and a good catch up was had with friends. All in all, a great afternoon out.
