The Tullamore Garden Club – in association with Tullamore Show – will welcome Mr Pat Thornton as guest speaker at their meeting in the Court Hotel, Tullamore, on Wednesday April 6th.
A prominent member of the Irish Dahlia Society, and himself a keen Dahlia grower and well qualified judge, Pat will give an illustrated talk on growing these beautiful flowers, with emphasis on preparing them for the Show Bench.
To this end he will bring along a selection of suitable bulbs, support sticks and appropriate compost, insecticide and fungicide. What promises to be a fascinating presentation is timed to commence at 8.00 p.m.

Added interest will be provided by prizes and raffles and it is hoped that the event will lead to an increased entry in the Novice classes in Tullamore Show and other Midland shows.
All are welcome – members and non-members alike.
