    I came to the nursery through the U3A at Harlaxton. Tim gave a lecture on two subjects, one was on garden chemicals, using ChemPak as examples and explaining what chemical was used for which purpose (fruiting, foliage etc). He also gave a lecture on summer pruning.

    We have a horticultural club of around 20 members. would it be possible for us to visit and have a similar talk on the merits of chemicals in the garden during the summer, say perhaps July or June next year?

    I would appreciate a reply.
