August proved to be a changeable month but we were not downhearted as at the end of July, the sun had worked its magic for our Annual Fayre and Flower Show, which helped to make it a great success! In September our thoughts turn to autumn and all the jobs that lie ahead!
Our speaker on 13th September will focus on fungi, which tend to proliferate in the autumn. We look forward to welcoming Michael Jordan, an English mycologist (an expert on Fungi), author of The Encyclopedia of Fungi of Britain and Europe, and founder and chairman of the Association of British Fungal Groups (ABFG). Michael Jordan founded ABFG in 1996, having observed an upsurge in interest in mushroom hunting since presenting Mushroom Magic, a documentary on Channel 4 in 1989.
With the days growing shorter we may be thinking about slowly winding down our gardening activities, but the Kilmington Gardening Club is busy planning for next year already! Our 2020 programme will be ready shortly but you can be sure that there will be plenty of interest.
