SHIRLAND: Nurseryman Brian Ellis offers gardening tips to Hardy Plant Society members



The meeting of the Derbyshire group of the Hardy Plant Society in Shirland Village Hall was attended by around 100 members.

Brian Ellis, nurseryman and plantsman from Avon Dale Nursery in the Midlands, gave an illustrated talk on the many plants growing in his ‘Library Garden’. He was generous in his advice about propagation and the techniques of growing to achieve the best results.

This was the final meeting of the season and members are looking forward to the numerous trips organised by the committee to gardens and shows throughout the summer.
