We are very lucky that Stephanie Tyler who started the Monmouthshire Meadows Group can come and speak to us about their group and hopefully provide us all with plenty of ideas and inspiration. In addition Charles Morgan (RSPB, formerly from PONT the Welsh grazing animals project) will talk about managing grasslands with grazing animals and Bruce Langridge will talk about waxcaps – it will be the perfect time of year for you to search for these fascinating fungi on your meadows.sdim5339-2

I’m hoping Bruce might be able to put some names to some of the above, which I’ve spotted earlier this year in our fields.SDIM4332 (2)

About thegardenimpressionists - Julian and Fiona Wormald

Julian and Fiona Wormald met and married whilst at Cambridge University. Shortly after qualifying we established our own veterinary practice in Bristol which we ran for over 20 years before relocating to West Wales. We have restored our derelict longhouse home and created a garden over the last 23 years, which we now occasionally open for charity, by appointment, for the N.G.S. About 7 years ago we started "The Garden Impressionists" to reflect our current ideas. Our principal gardening influences over the years have included the gardens and writings of Claude Monet, Beth Chatto, Joy Larkom and William Robinson. Incorporating some of their ideas and philosophy into our own garden, alongside our own ideas of what is important for this location and climate, has kept us physically and mentally challenged as the garden has developed.
