Maureen Sawyer from Southlands, Stretford, Lancashire M32 9DA

"An Organic Kitchen Garden"

Maureen gave a detailed and comprehensively illustrated talk on her organic kitchen garden at her house in Stratford which she has developed over a period of 25 years. To begin with she set out some of the science and principles of organic gardening:-

a. Soil building and improving. b. Pest control and management. c. Heirloom plant preservation.

She talked about her personal commitment to this approach, giving examples of how she has created a both a productive and decorative space.

Explaining about the techniques she applies, extensively re-using plastic bottle cloches, building raised beds, applying crop rotation, feeding the soil, not the plants, and watering carefully.

Her garden is open to visit on the 17th July as part of the NGS
