Professional gardener Bob Coutts (pictured above) is set to return to Beccles Public Hall on Sunday, February 15, to share hints and tips on how to get the best from your gardens and allotments.

His previous talk was a huge success, with a full audience soaking in the useful information that Bob has accumulated from his lifetime of working with plants and flowers.

Sue Bergin, events coordinator at the Public Hall, said: “It’s thrilling that Bob is coming back.

“His talk will include pruning and training of fruit trees and shrubs followed by a question and answer session.”

Also included will be the popular seed swap feature, where anyone can exchange their surplus seeds and perhaps try new varieties or plants. Seeds can by taken along on the day, in an envelope, clearly marked with the contents inside.

The events team expect this much-loved event to be a sell-out again, so are advising people to buy their tickets early to avoid disappointment.

Tickets cost £5 and the event will start at 2pm with doors opening at 1.30pm.
