New Perspectives on all Things Horticultural
John Rawsthorne - Long time Club Members John and Margot emigrated from England in 1959 just weeks after their marriage. Not sure if they would be able to find work they had a fall-back plan to return to UK, but were both working within two weeks. After two years in an apartment, they settled into their first and only home on Marine Drive in West Vancouver 46 years ago. When they moved in, the front half of the property was a mature garden which over the years has been re-landscaped. The back half was a wilderness for many years, over-run with blackberries, but a marvelous playground for their two sons. In recent years the wilderness has been transformed into a more accessible garden where their grandchildren now play. It is still a work in progress. John will take us on a pictorial tour of the garden highlighting many of the plants.
