Maxton Met - Emma Emmerson

Maxton Village Hall, with 26 of an audience, was the scene of much entertainment and a true learning experience when Emma, from Floors Garden Centre took everyone on a world tour. Her topic "Plants - What's in a Name?" was a fascinating trip into Language - mainly Latin and Greek, Countries, Plant Hunters, as well as formal botanical structures and the more obvious categories such as colour and shape.
Thanks Emma for a very worthwhile evening, and we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.
We certainly were made to think about plants and why they are named as they are.

Kerria japonica pleniflora

Geranium himalayense gravetye
