When I first mentioned the subject of this talk to the secretary of one of the garden clubs I speak to on a regular basis, they looked shocked. “Nobody will come to that”. My response was “well in that case don’t tell them what its about…just say its a mystery” and you don’t have to pay me if you don’t like it.” That was enough incentive and within 5 minutes the audience was laughing and I think the evening was a success.
BUT of course most groups need to have a ‘proper’ title to put on their programme so I chose the wonderfully nondescript WHAT MADE YOUR GARDEN GROW ? You might be able to guess what its really about from the picture below … but don’t worry if you can’t – the same promise will apply. If the audience aren’t amused or fall asleep then you needn’t pay me!
