This Saturday, 18th July 2009 1.30pm
at
Southern Woods Tree Nursery (3km south of Cookie Time, Templeton)

Please meet in the car park by the retail area at 1.30pm sharp.

A practical demonstration by staff member Stephen Lockett, who is extremely knowledgeable about orchard care and is a trained horticultural tutor.  Stephen will be supported by Allan Coburn - ex-owner of Shotover Garden Centre and manager of our very successful retail garden centre at Southern Woods.

Your chance to ask questions on correct procedures and get some precious advice from those that know!
