What Matthew says about giving Gardening talks -
"Giving talks - I love it!
There is always such a buzz of excitement when gardeners get together, we're all thrilled, enthralled and passionate about plants and gardens - there's nothing better than spending time focusing on our favourite subject.
A talk is such a sociable occasion, it's the perfect chance to chat, laugh, learn together and share past experiences; questions are answered, new friendships made and we all have a great time. When visiting a gardening group I always feel as though I'm amongst friends and I'm really looking forward to meeting you."
