March Meeting 2013 – Press Release

There was an excellent turn out for our meeting on 10th March at Cors Y Gedol. All were welcomed by chairman Tony Bowers who reminded us of the club’s spring show on 22nd March at Dyffryn Ardudwy village hall. Volunteers would be appreciated to prepare the venue at 7pm on 21st March.

The AGM commences at 6.30 pm on 14th April at Royal St David’s Golf Club, Harlech, with a dinner after the meeting. A menu was circulated for those wishing to stay for the meal.

Our resident gardening expert Guy Lloyd provided his monthly tips, time to prune roses and hydrangeas, sow parsnips and plant onion sets but we must remain cautious due to the risk of frost. We were also shown some flowering shrubs from Ty Newydd.

Our evening’s speaker was Eurwyn Roberts of Felin Nurseries Dolwyddelan giving advice on dahlia and chrysanthemum propagation, growing on, tips on deterring pests and the need for vigilance against devastating viruses.

Questions were answered form the floor and the vote of thanks for a most enjoyable and informative evening was given by the chairman.

The winner of the monthly competition was Pauline Large.
