Bentworth Garden Club

Garden Club The Villager

Last month the Garden Club members listened to a wonderful talk on French Landscape Gardens. The speaker was Pamela Holt.

New potatoes with skin you can just push off and broad beans that you can pick before they get large and leathery and you can afford to have large bowls of them. Snap peas are great straight from the vine. The french beans both climbing and dwarf and runner beans are easily available but are so productive it seems a shame not to grow them. Like courgettes, where three plants bought from the garden centre will supply all you need. If you are very cheffy you may like to stuff the flowers. ...
