A group of enthusiastic members of the Tenterden and District Horticultural Society gathered in Tenterden at the Scout Hut to create door decorations to hang on their doors this Christmas. The members arrived early in the morning with bags and buckets of greenery, which they spread out in the middle of the large room. Under the expert tutelage of Lindy Bates, Secretary of the Society, they used green oasis in a hanging frame to create their door decoration. Undaunted by Lindy’s “Here’s one I made earlier” they began sticking the greenery into the oasis layer by layer until the oasis was thoroughly covered. Although some of the members were beginners, they each made a lovely door hanging. This was one of the most rewarding activities members had experienced throughout the year. The Society welcomes new members to join a very active group of gardeners.
