Christmas Tea

This week we had our annual Christmas sparkling tea. Ali Dempster, garden designer gave us a insight into what goes on behind the scenes at Chelsea and Hampton court. A delicious tea and a Christmas gift of seeds to take home made the perfect afternoon. A huge thank you for the kind donation of seeds from the Organic Garden Catalogue and Thompson and Morgan and Rootgrow from Empathy. The members will be using the seeds and root compound and sharing their results in the coming months. Posted by SBA – The Society of Botanical Artists on Thursday, 6 December 2018
