Sorry Jim,

I didn't bother taking pictures when I saw that you and Laura were both taking them.

Really interesting talk, sorry we were a little late.

Got a nice specimen to try and nurture ,and won an interesting tube of food grade LUBE.






Nice to see other members of the bkks Yorkshire section present.

Don’t worry about being late tony I missed the start as well, I think Lorraine has got plans for that raffle prize
On to the talk and I thoroughly enjoyed it very informative and some great points on keeping them healthy. Wouldn’t mind paying their nursery a visit in the spring.

Wayne,
They don't sell from their nursery , only at the major horticultural shows. Harrogate, Chatsworth, Tatton Park are our nearest ones. They do really well always achieving gold medals. I do have some photos of some of their displays will try to find and post a few.

Maybe Jim or Paul could pull some strings and get us another treat could visit Ken in Coventry at the same time.

The lube is fine for lubricating the moving parts of my oven and using like wd40 cannot imagine what Lofty was thinking about.

sounds like you had a great meeting with Neil, i know most people have maples around their koi ponds & it helps to know how best to look after them. although i no longer have a pond i certainly have maples & Neils web site & book are full of info on maples.





if you forget your history, you will repeat your mistakes, RoyH
