This months meeting was well attended with majority of members bringing in trees to repot and their was a good buzz.
One of our members wanted to have some thread grafts put on her tree no one had a drill but Tom went home and brought said drill in and I see Malcolm demonstrating how to put a graft through the tree, what was more encouraging was to see Audrey having a go herself.
This month was a very well attended competition with 11 entries and the winner was Malcolm in 1st place with his Japanese Maple followed by Chris J with his Chinese Juniper and Tony Oswin with his White Pine in joint 2nd place and Amelia with her Japanese Forsythia in 3rd place.
