The Answer Lies in the Soil: a talk by Geoff Hawkins

Date: Wednesday 28 February 2024

Club: Thursley Horticultural Society

Contact: Mrs. Pat Clake

Phone: 01252-706869



On Wednesday 28th February 2024, at 7.30pm at Thursley Village Hall, Dye House Lane, Thursley, Godalming, Surrey, GU8 6QD. New members and visitors are always very welcome.

Our speaker is Geoff Hawkins, Head Gardener for many years on a 30 acre estate, Mill Court, in Alton, Hampshire. A man with lots of experience! He has been one of the gardening experts to speak on LBC, Southern Counties Radio and Delta FM and is a member of the Surrey Guild of Judges and Lecturers.

Geoff is to speak to us with a highly recommended lecture entitled “The Answer Lies in the Soil”, a guide to what goes on in the soil and how gardeners can improve it, the environment and hopefully the planet. A good place to start at this time of year.

Please come with lots of questions, for example about peat-free compost, mulching and composting (what exactly is the difference?) and how we can help our plants to thrive with out too much watering. Does the answer lie in the soil? We hope that you will enjoy the evening. Refreshments, and good company, available as always.
