From Jungle to Paradise

An Inspirational Talk and Slideshow about

Cascades Gardens

From Jungle to Paradise

Thank you to everyone who attended last night’s talk at the village hall. Alan Clements’ inspiring story took the audience on a journey from meeting the Dala Lama in the mid-1990s, to purchasing Cascades House in Bonsall and creating a truly magical garden, based on the concepts of Zen meditation, mindfulness, and achieving inner peace and happiness. The Horticultural Society also enjoyed sharing plants and seeds following the talk with fellow members and guests exchanging garden goodies as well as purchasing plants from Alan’s nursery at Casades Garden.

Thank you Alan Clements for his time and dedication to horticulture.

Monty’s Seed Exchange

As the days start to get longer and memories of my winter cruise sail off into the distance my attention starts to turn towards the garden once again. With Mrs Monty perusing the seed catalogs I’ve for once got in first and have received my seed order before her!

 

Having underestimated the number of seed potatoes in a bag I find myself with a surplus of Anyas. Anya is an early variety of potato grown exclusively for Sainsbury’s supermarkets by Albert Bartlett.  Also most of the seed packets have many times more seeds than I’ll ever have room for, even allowing for failures, so as usual I’ll likely be left with rows of potted up young plants and half used packets of seeds.

I’m sure many others will be in the same position so how about a seed and plant swop and exchange? First up would anybody like to try growing a few Anyas?

If you’re interested let me know. Also if anybody has surplus seeds/plants over the next few months drop me an email via parwich@hotmail.co.uk or add a comment to my latest post.

Happy Gardening

Monty
