January Meeting: Talk by Rob Jacobs “Miss Havergill and Waterperry herbaceous borders”

At our very well-attended January meeting (52 people), we welcomed Rob Jacobs, the garden manager at Waterperry Gardens who gave us an interesting talk on Waterperry’s  herbaceous borders together with lots of hints for our own gardens.  Rob also gave us an insight into the philosophy of the famous Beatrix Havergill in the days of Waterperry Horticultural College of which she was the founder.  A lively discussion with social tea and chat followed Rob’s talk and we were very  pleased to welcome some new members.
