Gardeners Question Time

Want to know when to prune your fruit trees, what has eaten your prized plant, why your seedlings have died, the best plants for dry shade? Then come to our Gardeners Question Time on Monday 15th May and pose your questions, thorny or otherwise.

Questions will be answered by a panel of local horticultural experts chaired by Reg Moule, BBC Hereford and Worcester’s gardening guru.

The cost of the evening is £4 per person and all are welcome.  Doors open at Colwall Village Hall at 7pm with the actual question time session starting at 7:30pm

So why not come along, bring some friends, and get your gardening conundrums answered – probably!
