Fee: C plus expenses
Equipment: All lectures are illustrated with high quality slides, and in some cases demonstrations of plants can also be arranged. Remote control/autofocus projector, screen, projector stand and extension leads can be provided. I am also able to give demonstrations on pruning and propagation where numbers and facilities allow. Unusual plants can also be brought for sale. As a new feature some talks can reduced in length so that two topics can be presented in the same lecture, perhaps useful for more specialised talks, since not everyone is interested in snowdrops.
Availability: If available, I am always willing to give talks to local groups at short notice should an existing speaker have to cancel.  Visits for gardening clubs can also be arranged to the garden at Fairview throughout the year on weekends or in the evening. Tea, coffee and homemade cakes can be included all for £4 per person.
