The group with Stephanie Lee

The members of WEA Sutton on Sea visited Marigold Cottage Garden on 12 September 2016 as part of their course ‘This Month in the Garden’.

The group were invited to the garden by owner Stephanie Lee .

Stephanie showed the group around and then demonstrated how she propagates plants to use in the garden and for sale. She then let them collect material for cuttings and gave them some seeds to take away and sow at home. Dave Newman, the tutor for the course, then showed people how to make the material into cutting which the group were allowed to take home.

In conclusion it was a very good morning enjoyed by all, with everyone getting involved and gaining some potential plants to take home.
