Gearing up for the next Random Acts of Cuttings
A ‘Random Acts of Cuttings’ day was held back in
March by keen gardeners, after being inspired pre-covid
while at an Armatree garden.
The day involved a lot of sharing of plant knowledge, as well as sharing of plants themselves, where visitors were encouraged to take cuttings of bits and pieces they would like to grow in their own garden.
“We wanted to create a day for keen gardeners to share their plant knowledge and to be able to take cut- tings” said keen gardener and ‘Random Acts of Cuttings’ day organiser, Sally Beveridge.
“And of course, it’s also about enjoying a social day out roaming around a couple of gardens.”
Mrs Beveridge and Jenny Bradley pitched the idea to Armatree CWA back in January this year, and it has only gained momentum from there.
The inaugural Random Acts of Cuttings day was enjoyed by 27 ladies, starting with a morning in Cath Peart’s glorious garden where Mrs Peart explained her cutting and striking techniques. Then it was onto Janine Ferguson’s beautiful garden and a delicious high tea hosted by the Armatree CWA.
The second one in a few months’ time is set to be just as exciting and positive for all who attend.
