Meet ABC Gardening Gurus; Join Warwick Horticulture Soc Bus Trip to Brisbane

Article excerpt

THERE is an old saying, gardening friends, which says: "Wind, wind, go away, come again another day".

Recently we have been fortunate to receive valuable rain, but the wind is a strong moisture remover.

Let's hope that old saying eventuates.

Coach trip

NOW to an event which is bound to be of interest to garden lovers. Make a note in your diaries, that on Friday, 16 April, 2010, the Warwick Horticultural Society has arranged for a coach trip to Brisbane so that we may enjoy the ABC Gardening Australia Tour speakers. These are chaps we have gotten to know via the TV programs.

The coach will leave Warwick at 8am sharp, destination the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre.

You will, in all probability, have a chance to chat with Jerry Coleby-Williams, that devoted, passionate gardener; or, perhaps, Angus Stewart with his many native garden tips; or, maybe, Colin Campbell, for a familiar Queensland subtropical and tropical chatter on garden issues.

All in all an informative day to be enjoyed by all.

The coach trip will cost each passenger $50.00, which covers travel and exhibition entry to the ABC presentation. The return trip will arrive back in Warwick at 5pm.

For further information and bookings, contact Margot Cory on 4661 1414, but don't delay. This is always a popular excursion.
