On Saturday 11th March 2023, nursery owner, Colin Moat will be giving a talk entitled 50 Shades of Grey. The talk will be held in the main hall of the Church of the Good Shepherd, where the shows are held, commencing 2.30pm. with the talk at 3pm. Teas, coffee and biscuits. Colin has agreed to bring plants along to the talk which will be for sale before and after.

Colin spoke to the Southern Hardy Plant Society last year and was highly informative.

Pineview Plants is run by Colin & Cindy Moat and is approaching its twenty fifth year. Colin, on his retirement as an IFA in 2012, reinvigorated their hobby nursery. This started in the nineties, driven mainly by the love of plants and their propagation.

One other person works full time at the nursery. The Nursery is not open to the public and Colin sells at plants fairs and will have a stand at Chelsea this year.

Pineview Plants offer a wide range of herbaceous perennial plants ranging from rare, new or unusual, to easy, interesting and reliable. Many have been selected over the years, however, Colin is always on the lookout for better or more attractive forms with their selection changing from year to year. Their criteria are always good garden plants selected from new named varieties, to plants of species raised from seed. The wide range primarily reflects plants that are of interest to them and that they believe to be of outstanding merit, with leanings towards shade loving plants. These include many ferns, and a huge range of Epimedium’s. They also have collections of Sanguisorba, Thalictrum, Persicaria, Anemone nemerosa, Eranthis and far too many others!

The cost will be £3.00 for members and £4.00 for non-members which will be collected on the day. Please email us if you wish to reserve a space so we have some idea of the numbers to cater for.  If you wish to attend, please contact Cathy or David 0208 660 9242 or kwths@btinternet.com
