The Suffolk committee organised a gardening evening at the Dennington Village Hall, near Woodbridge, and raised £870.
Matt Tanton-Brown, manager of The Place of Plants in East Bergholt, led the informational evening. Having trained at the Royal Horticultural Society’s garden in Wisley, Matt was well prepared to answer questions from the audience. He gave a presentation on seasonal plants, pruning, and health and safety in the garden.
Lucy Bellefontaine, regional manager for the East, said: “I’d like to thank Matt for presenting at this event. He shared his knowledge with the budding gardeners in the Suffolk committee and other guests.”
