Green Finger Tips Gardening Club – February Meeting

Announcing the First Meeting of 2016

7.30pm on Thursday 4 February

Sand Hutton and Claxton Village Hall 

Speaker -  Dr Philip Orton ‘Deep Down and Dirty ……the story of soil’

Dr Orton until his retirement taught and researched at Askham Bryan College of Agriculture

One of the most important things to know about good gardening is to know about your soil. Your soil type determines what you can grow, how well your plants and trees can do and why some of them die.

Philip will give an entertaining talk with practical testing of your soil samples. Bring along  some DRY soil samples in separate containers and taken from different parts of your garden (dry the soil by leaving in your house or greenhouse for a few days). These will be tested to find what you need to do to grow your plants more successfully.
