Nigel HarrisonOur October 5th meeting saw the very popular Nigel Harrison (Radio York's Gardening Guru) make his last visit to us before we close at the end of the year. Some 25 members and guests were entertained by Nigel throughout the evening by his talk on when he supported two of his students at the Landscaping World Skills Competition in Tokyo before showing us some fantastic images of Japanese gardens he visited at the time.


Nigel also took the time to chat with us and everyone certainly seemed to enjoy his visit.

Our next meeting is on November 2nd and brings Mary Swan to Ilkley who will be explaining the styles, designs and influences of the Gardens of Marrackech.

For those interested, Maurice Willson will be continuing to collate orders for Kings Seeds this winter, quality seeds at a fantastic price anyway, but if minimum order values are met, then an extra discount of up to 50% will be on offer.


Looking forward to our December meeting, our final meeting after 50 years of the Association, we will be holding a social gathering with a Christmas Quiz and 50 free Narcissus Golden Anniversary bulbs for the first 30 attendees. Put it in your diary now!
