Recommendations and Tips - some from speakers, some home grown

As you can see from our programme, we have a varied list of speakers at our meetings, some of whom provide us with a list of plants they recommend for our conditions in North West England.  Click on a Speaker below for their personal details and the Topic to see their recommendations.

The lists are in PDF format, which can be viewed with the free Adobe Acrobat Reader.
