Garden Society outing to Beeches Nursery, Ashton 14th June

About 20 members of the Society enjoyed a beautiful warm and sunny June evening visit to Beeches Nursery in Ashdon.

 

  An introductory talk was given by Alan Bidwell on the origins of the nursery and how it has developed since 1983, initially for bedding plants, and then with the involvement of Kevin, expanding the range of perennials, trees and shrubs. 

A tour of the wildlife meadow resplendent with wildflowers, grasses and orchids (see photo of bee orchid) followed, after which members were able to enjoy tea and coffee served in the greenhouse and to browse amongst the enormous range of plants, some rare and special. 

Our thanks to Alan and his team for their hospitality.
