Jack Willgoss of Wildegoose Nursery will describe the beauty and variety of perennial grasses and how to combine them with other plants. These have so much to offer our gardens throughout the year, whichever types of planting scheme we already prefer. In the gardens at Wildegoose Nursery, Jack and Laura Willgoss have created a backbone of different interwoven grasses growing between a succession of hardy and tender perennials, annuals and biennials which allows the garden to be different every year.
Visitors are very welcome: £5, incl. refreshments. Members £3. Also usually some plants for sale. Doors open at 2pm, the talk starts at 2.30pm and the meeting finishes around 4.15pm.
