The SRGC Snowdrop Day 2017

We have set the date of Sunday 26th February 2017 for our club’s
Snowdrop Day. There is only space for thirty participants  to meet at
Westmuir hall at 10 o’clock in the morning for a programme
that will include a presentation by Matt Bishop, a visit to Brechin Castle
to see special snowdrops, lunch at the Castle’s garden centre (under
£10, or bring your own lunch). We will then travel on to Maulsden to
view the special colony of Galanthus plicatus and take a walk around a
million or more Galanthus nivalis. The cost per member is around £15
and we will provide coffee and tea at the hall. For any further details
please contact ianchristie@btconnect.com

this is one of the joint shows which runs under SRGC rules every other year, and is part of the programme of shows that our SRGC members have always supported.

Next SRGC Event:

David Boyd Day – at Grant Arms Hotel,  The Square, Grantown on Spey PH26 3HF
‘Rock Gardening from the Ground Up’ -  8th July 2017


9:45am Registration, tea coffee
10:15am Growing Alpines in Inhospitable Places Neil Huntley
11:10am Basic Needs of Growing Alpine Plants Ian Christie
Noon Lunch, tea, coffee

Thanks to the extremely generous bequest by David Boyd the SRGC is organizing a

The first of these will take place on 8 July in Grantown-on-

elements of rock gardening.

The cost for the day is £12.50 to cover teas, coffees, soup and sandwiches. There is
plenty of accommodation in Grantown if you are coming from outside the area
including camp sites, B & B’s and the Grant Arms Hotel itself, where you will receive
a special rate of £75 for DB&B if you quote Grantown Event when you make your
booking.
The day will start at 9.45am with registration along with tea and coffee and will end at
4pm, again with tea and coffee.

Space in the Osprey Suite at the Grant Arms is limited to 70 people, plus the speakers,
so if you are interested in attending either phone  Carol on 01309 641405 or email
findhorncarol@icloud.com to reserve.
