Making the most of fruit in your garden - Evening Talk 11th Jan

January 11, 2017

On a dreich mid-January night, we were delighted to welcome Joanna Gough to talk about Making the Most of fruit in your garden. We were also delighted by the numbers of members that attended on such a bad weather night - all enthusiastically looking forward to the better weather and Spring arriving.

 

Joanna challenged Society members to think differently about fruit, and took us on a journey of more trendy and 'exotic'(well, at least for the west coast of Scotland) fruit. 

 

We went on a journey of Lingonberry, Goji Berry and even outdoor grape vines:
