I’m sure the 28 people who joined the Look & Learn session at Moffat’s Nursery will agree that it was a fascinating experience. For someone brought up in a family of Rosarians and at my age (21 Again?) I thought I knew about growing roses…. wrong!  Being taken through the enormous glass houses showed there was so much for us all to learn about propagation, irrigation, fertilizing, spraying and climate to keep them healthy. The two glass houses of philanaeopsis orchids were inspirational. Much of the Nursery has had to be re-built following the Earthquakes and a disastrous fire which followed the following New Year’s Eve. They are to be congratulated for the remarkable way they have rebuilt and recovered. 

Thanks to Gail and Freda for organizing such a great afternoon which we finished with coffee at The Vicarage.

Thanks also to those of you who supported our first Winter Speaker and the extravagant Margaret Watling Event. Elizabeth
