Have your say

IF YOU would like to know how to grow the perfect rose, now is your chance to ask an expert.

Geoff Gleadall will be giving a talk on beginners and experts can learn more about how to plant, grown and design roses at Havant Garden Centre later this month.

Mr Gleadall will hold a public question and answer session following the talk on June 26.

Manager of the garden centre Nigel Samuels said: ‘The evening is set to be both fascinating and inspirational.’

The event begins at 6pm with wine and canapes and is open to gardening club members. It is free to join.

There will also be a free prize draw with the chance to win a trip to the David Austin Plant Centre.

Places are limited and booking is essential.
