The Dulwich Society’s Garden Group is focusing on front gardens this year. Their spring talk is on what we can all do to enhance our front gardens, with an expert panel of professional garden designers, Pamela Johnson, Nigel Watts and Anthony Noel.
The talk will be at Alleyn’s School and there will be a glass of wine and a chance to meet the speakers afterwards. The talk should give useful pointers for our 2016 front garden competition.
“Let’s be front garden proud” – talk, 7.30pm Wednesday 9th March at Alleyn’s School. Tickets are £7 each. For further details and an application form, see www.dulwichsociety.com/garden-group .
