SEPT/OCT NOTES. Painswick Gardening Club: Season Starts Superbly


The title says it all! Julie Dolphin of Miserden Nurseries delighted her audience with a detailed and amusing 'behind the scenes' look at how Gardeners World is made by the BBC. She also gave us an insight into her plans for the Nursery - the future looks very rosy! A fascinating evening; I, for one, could have listened for hours.

On behalf of the Committee, I'd like to say how fantastic to see so many new faces joining and to thank everyone for their support of the Club.


The second speaker in our fabulous line-up this season (subs still a bargain at £18pp: check the website to see future treats) visits on 11th October (Church Rooms 7.30pm). Hugh Thomas of Little Malvern Court and Gardens talks about 'What Makes a Great Garden and Garden Visit'.


As mentioned last month, the Club is absolutely delighted to be hosting "An Audience with.....James Alexander-Sinclair" on Friday 10th November (Painswick Centre). James is an internationally acclaimed garden designer, an elected member of the Council of the RHS, an award winning writer with features published in the Daily Telegraph, House and Garden and The Garden to name but a few and a regular columnist for Gardeners World magazine and Gardens Illustrated. He is a well respected broadcaster and a compelling speaker.

Come and join us for a lively afternoon packed with interesting information, anecdotes and wit - prepare to be informed and entertained in equal measure!

Doors open at 1.45pm for a 2.30pm start.
