Sedgemoor Gardens Club — 'The Scented Garden"
Tues 12th Nov 2019
7pm @ All Saints' Hall
Speaker, Jeremy Wilson, is a life-long professional gardener, working as head gardener in many parts of England before settling in Kingsbridge where he runs a camellia nursery. Fragrant plants are top of his 'must-have' lists. His first illustration was of a colourful long border, remarking that to walk through a flower garden is good, but to walk through a scented garden is even better. Scents are more than a sensory response — they evoke memories of people and places. For him, lilies of the valley would always bring back memories of his grandmother.
