On Tuesday 28th March 2023 at 7.45pm at St Paul’s Church Hall, St Paul’s Road West, Dorking, Surrey, RH4 2HT. There’s free entry for members of Dorking Allotment Holders’ Association. Non-members can join DAHA for £5.

Our annual growing season kick off event ‘Spring into Action’ will be split into two separate talks for 2023, for each of them we welcome Andrew Halstead as our guest speaker.

Before he retired, Andrew was the Principal Entomologist at RHS Garden Wisley. He has more than 40 years of experience in identifying and managing the pests of vegetables, fruits and garden flowers. In this first talk, Andrew will help us to recognise the ‘pests of vegetables’ and tell us what we can do to mitigate the impact of them on our allotment and garden crops.
