The next meeting of the Southern African Bulb Group will be the Spring meeting on Sunday 7th April 2019, at Badger Farm Community Centre, Winchester, Hampshire SO22 4QB (U.K.) Doors open at 10:00 a.m. and the meeting will finish at approximately 3 to 4 p.m.
The speaker for the morning session at approximately 11:00 a.m. will be Kit Strange from the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, who will give a demonstration of how bulbs are grown at Kew.
All who are interested in growing these plants will be welcome. There is an entry fee of £3.00, but parking is free. There will as usual be a plant display table, photos, short talks, plant sales (a good reason to arrive soon after 10:00!), and tea and coffee with biscuits. There will also be some books for sale. You are encouraged to bring along any plants you wish to display or sell, or digital photos to share with the audience. Bring your own lunch, or buy something at Sainsbury’s next door.
This is a new version of the SABG web site, which is intended to contain all the information from the original SABG web site (which will remain available for a while, but will not be updated). The URL (address) at which the web site can be found has not changed. It is www.sabg.tk or just sabg.tk. It is a secure web-site. If your web browser says it isn’t, go to https://sabg.tk.
This new version is hosted by a company whose servers are housed in an energy-efficient data centre powered by energy from green renewable sources. It’s implemented as a “wiki” in order to make it easier for people to contribute to it. The page “What's a wiki?” gives more details of how it works. Please email me with any problems or suggestions.
