Historic Roses Group 2009 AGM & Autumn Event

On Friday 23 October 2009 the Group will visit the Sir Harold Hillier Arboretum at Ampfield, near Romsey, for our autumn event and Annual General Meeting.

The meeting will be in the Cedar Room at Jermyns House at 12 noon, with tea/coffee served from 11.30am onwards. After the meeting there will be a break for lunch; as facilities at Jermyns are booked that day, lunch for us is not included, but can be purchased in the restaurant in the gardens. We then reassemble for a personal guided tour of the roses (the species collection is especially good) by Barry Clarke, who is the head propagator for the gardens. This will last approximately 1½ hours. We shall conclude with a practical discussion on how to propagate and care for roses.

The cost for the event will be £10 (excluding lunch). Please let Mary Hember know if you are coming, so that we can give your name to the staff – otherwise you may end up paying for admission to the gardens. Mary Hember’s address is: The Wool House, Codford St Peter, Warminster, Wiltshire, BA12 0NE. E-mail: mary@hember.net Tel: 01985 850152

Please use the Jermyns House entrance and car park.
