KEEN gardeners’ were getting their questions answered by the experts at a hugely successful event in Kinstone.

The Inner Wheel Club of Uttoxeter held the Gardener’s Question Time at Kingstone Village Hall which saw nearly 80 people attend.

A wide range of questions were put to a panel of experts chaired by Veronica Gillett from the Kingstone Gardening Club.

The panel comprised of Ann Liverman, of the National Gardens Scheme (NGS) who opens her garden at Dove Cottage, and Clifton and Ken Sutton, also of the NGS, whose garden is open to the public under the Yellow Book scheme at The Beeches, in Rocester.

The third member of the panel was Bill Hudson who lectures at Broomfield Agricultural College, near Derby.

A spokesman for the event said the expert panel’s answers were as informative to local gardeners as they were entertaining.

A raffle was drawn after light refreshments had been taken during the interval.

The raffle and ticket sales together raised £568 for Inner Wheel’s overseas aid programme.

Beneficiaries will include an orphanage for disabled children in Zambia, Mercy Ships, Lepra, Phoenix India, Water Aid and Sight Savers.

President Sally Hibbert said she would like to thank members who helped to organise the event.

She also thanked all those who attended and made the evening so successful.
