Graham White Talk - Whimple VPA

Report on the talk by Graham White on 24th October

Herbaceous Perennials and Borders

We had an very informative and amusing talk by Graham White. Graham previously lectured in horticulture at the Warwickshire College where he was based for 27 years.

We were each given a list of 67 plants and were shown a picture of each plant in turn. All were chosen for their good value, colour and hardiness and we were told what soil they preferred and what conditions they liked, when they flowered and any special attention they needed. Some were scented, some loved by bees but all had some value to add.

I’m sure we all learnt a lot about those plants and will inspire us in our future purchases.

The evening finished with questions, of which there were several, a most enjoyable having been spent by all.
