Plant-hunting in Southern England: Moving off the Chalk by Jon Evans

Plant-hunting in Southern England: Moving off the Chalk by Jon Evans

We are accustomed to travelogues from people visiting far-off places, but many interesting plants grow much closer to home. Local group member Jon Evans follows up his talk on 'Plants of the Chalk' by focusing on aspects of the UK native flora found on beaches, heaths and bogs.

The meeting is at Mayford Village Hall, Saunders Lane, Mayford, Woking at 8.00pm Thursday 4th January 2018.

(Visitors £2.00. There is a small annual fee to join)

For more information, please contact the Secretary Mike Morton, 01483-768047

Alpine Garden Society - Woking West Surrey Group

The purpose of the Society is to promote the cultivation and conservation of alpine plants.

The group was formed to promote an interest in alpine plants in the wild and in cultivation. The term alpine plants is taken to include herbaceous plants, shrubs, small bulbs and orchids from all over the world that would be at home in a rock or small woodland garden, or in an unheated greenhouse or frame.

Our friendly meetings offer a wealth of information and inspiration with slide shows by enthusiastic speakers often world authorities in their field.

The meeting includes a mini plant show, plant sales, raffle and refreshments. Growers, photographers, plant hunters, mountain walkers and couch gardeners are all very welcome.

The Woking - West Surrey Group is affiliated to the national Alpine Garden Society (http://www.alpinegardensociety.net/index.html). However, membership of the Alpine Garden Society is not essential for membership of the group. Our annual subscription is £10 or £15 for a family. Why not enjoy one of our evenings as a visitor for just £2?

Meetings are held at Mayford Village Hall, Saunders Lane, Mayford, Woking at 8.00pm on the first Thursday of each month, from September to May inclusive. Doors open at 7.30pm.
