21 February – Robin Johnson, Propagation and Grafting 
Robin is passionate about gardens and has a practical down to earth approach to the methodology of sowing and harvesting. He will provide a practical workshop showing us how to increase our plants through budding as a form of shrub, rose and tree propagation. Budding is  mostly done during our summer months, November to late January when plants are in their full growth period with sap rising through the stem of the rootstock.

He will be provide pictorial handouts of this specialised plant propagation method.

Afterwards enjoy a ramble in the Railway Garden followed by lunch with your fellow gardeners at the Alexandra Hotel Leura.
