Newsletter, January 2020

The January 2020 issue of the Society’s newsletter has been sent to members. It is an excellent issue with a strong emphasis on Irish plants and gardens – interesting plant portraits and news of Irish gardens.

Well done to the editing committee for producing such a top-class newsletter!

Also enclosed with the newsletter is the Society’s Seed Distribution Scheme List – an opportunity for members to select 20 packets of seed, completely free of charge. These seeds are contributed by members, sorted and packaged by volunteers and now available to members. It’s a great and fun way of growing new and interesting plants.
