Hope you are all well and have enjoyed time in the garden.
I'm delighted to say Tender Shoots is back after a summer break to bring you all some fantastic horticultural speakers.
We're kicking off on Wed 11th Aug at 7.30pm with a talk on “Growing for Showing” from Philip Aubury (former Director of Birmingham Botanical Gardens). Followed on Tue 17th with a talk from renowned research entomologist Dr Ian Bedford (who's appeared on numerous TV programs including BBC Gardeners World) entitled "Garden Bugs: Cohabit, Control or Conserve?". We have 6 talks in August and September, see list of dates at the end of this email.

2) Or you can also go to our YouTube page when the talk is about to start (at 7.30pm) as we simultaneously stream the meeting Live on YouTube. To join just click this link www.youtube.com/c/TenderShootsGardenClubNetwork or search YouTube for the 'Tender Shoots Garden Club Network' and then click on our yellow logo. The advantage of YouTube Live is you can start the talk from the beginning if you arrive late, you can pause, rewind & skip any bits & still ask questions to the speaker via YouTube chat box.
As usual guests are very welcome and free to attend anytime, so please forward onto your gardening friends.
Please let me know in advance if you would like a Zoom breakout room for your own individual club, so that you can chat amongst just your own friends/members before and/or after the talk.
