A talk at Hadleigh Gardening Association on 15th August 2019
Tulips in Holland
Nick Dobson delivered an illustrated talk entitled ‘A Funny Thing Happened To Me On The Way To The Potting Shed’ to an enthusiastic audience at Hadleigh Gardening Association (HGA) on the evening of Thursday 15th August 2019.
The talk – one of more than 70 in Nick’s repertoire – was held in the Appliance Bay at Hadleigh Old Fire Station (HOFS). The room was packed to hear how Nick had been inspired by listening to Percy Thrower, had then become National Fuchsia champion and developed a wide range of references for his talk, leavened with humour in the garden.
As Cicero said; “If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need” and Nick sprinkled a wide variety of tips derived from both his garden and his library; including:
about growing tomatoes earlier,
an unexpected but useful warning about handling wallflowers, and
complementary planting to protect runner beans.
