The club met at Oude Libertas, Stellenbosch, for a talk about China - the Mother of Gardens.
Wim Tijmens, an internationally acclaimed speaker and famous in the world of horticulture has visited China many times and has many stories to re-tell.
It was fascinating to hear him - from identifying rare plants in remote areas - even discovering new plants, to Chinese culture (a spell in a Chinese hospital was interesting indeed!).
He also took us on a virtual tour of not only China, but the whole world, with his slideshow and travel tales.
This was a joint club outing - with the Country Garden Club also based in the Boland area and as a result we had a very healthy turnout - it was great to mingle with other green fingered minds!
Afterwards, we moved from the auditorium to the restaurant, where almost 50 of us were treated to a 3 course meal, with roaring fire and wine bottles in their cellar as a backdrop. Delicious - thankyou for the great service!
