Presentation by Peter Taverna (who only came to extract information from our experts)!

Peter appears to be a hoarder of plants and seeds - the more unusual the better! But having successfully grown a special plant, he's continually seeking more information on it, and that seems to be the reason he agreed to talk to us again… We have a dedicated group of guys who are experts in their chosen fields within the Society - and Peter spent the night trying to extract more information on his plants from them - with repeated requests for names of the plants he was showing, and the best way to grow them!
We jest of course! Peter was a mine of information, and a most engaging speaker.
Apart from interesting plants, most members were introduced to some quite special growing pots. Pots within pots to aid drainage… I think he called them "Orchid pots". Some were slotted and others had an inner pot constructed with mesh walls (see some of the images below). He made mention at one stage of a triple walled pot arrangement!

More to come… don't go away!
