IGPS ebulletin January / February
Welcome to another ebulletin.
There was an amazing turnout of almost 200 of us from all over Ireland and further afield for Rosemary Maye’s talk on 21st January; we think everyone who enjoyed it will want to say a big thank you to her for injecting some wonderful colour and enthusiasm into a dark January night. Here are just a few of the messages afterwards:
“Wonderful lecture, lovely garden.”
“A delight on a cold January night ”
“Great to sit with a cup of tea and forget about the woes of lockdown.”
- The Zoom lectures are for all members regardless of where you live.
- You only have to register once. If you have you already registered with Nichola Monk, you do not need to take any further action. She will automatically send you the link and passcode before the next lecture.
- If you didn’t register at the time of her email in early January but would like to take part in either or both of the lectures described below, send a message to Nichola on email@example.com asking to be added to the list.
Saturday 20th February 2.10pm log on for 2.30pm start
Indulge in some much-needed escapism on Saturday 20th February and join us on Zoom to hear;
Mike Nelhams’ talk: Paradise Garden, the story of Tresco Abbey Garden.
Mike trained at RHS Wisley and first went to Tresco, the second largest of the Isles of Scilly, as a student in the mid 1970s. He returned as Head Gardener in 1984, becoming Garden Curator in 1994. He is an RHS judge on the Tender Plants Committee, judging at Chelsea and other RHS shows, and is a regular lecturer. Mike has a particular interest in plants from the Mediterranean and associated coastal regions of the world.
Please log into Zoom in good time as this is a joint lecture with our friends in the Alpine Garden Society, Ulster Branch, and we expect a large turnout.
