Gal­ston Gar­den Club has had an­other in­ter­est­ing and busy month. The be­gin­ning of April saw club mem­bers board­ing a bus to ex­plore two gar­dens in the South­ern High­lands. At the first gar­den Emery Cot­tage, we were warmly greeted by the own­ers with a much needed morn­ing tea, with home­made muffins in a de­light­ful set­ting. Wan­der­ing around this lovey 2 acre gar­den nes­tled in the Kan­ga­roo Val­ley was a real treat. Onto Alan Gold­ing’s gar­den where we were as­tounded by the work done by the owner on such a steep slope, with a va­ri­ety of plant­ings and teem­ing with bird life, this is a gar­den un­der re­newal and one to watch. A lovely lunch at “Bistro One46” in the Val­ley, a wan­der around Ber­rima tak­ing in the Na­tional Trusts prop­erty Harpers Man­sion and the gor­geous Ber­rima nurs­ery com­pleted the day.

Our guest Speaker this month was David Cooper re­tired rose ex­pert from Swanes who gave an in­ter­est­ing, in­for­ma­tive and at times, funny talk on rose care. Thanks to David who will­ingly shared his knowl­edge and fielded many ques­tions. Next month’s speaker for May is Roslyn French who will be speak­ing on the care and prop­a­ga­tion of Proteas. Gar­den Club meets on the 2nd Weds of the month at the Gal­ston Com­mu­nity Cen­tre 37 Ar­ca­dia Rd., Gal­ston 8.00pm, new mem­bers are warmly wel­comed.
