from Bernard Rymer, www.westonvillagegardeningclub.co.uk, see October 11th above: "Just thought I would let you know that I have had excellent feedback on your talk to our club last Thursday night. A large number of people said that it was the best talk the club has had. We also had 7 visitors from the Allotment Society who came especially to hear you."
from Celia Marsh, events secretary of Bruton Horticultural Society after the talk in January: "Thank you very much for an excellent talk last night - I think it was the best attended talk we've ever had! Definitely a great way to start the new horticultural year and I think we will all try to be a bit more adventurous with what we grow for next winter - I am already looking forward to making better use of my greenhouse."
from Rob Alcock who organised the lecture at Kew Gardens in February, where I forgot my memory stick with all the photographs..."I wanted to extend all of our thanks for your lecture on Monday. I've asked around for feedback and it's all been very positive. I think the most specific point was an appreciation of your charismatic & fluent delivery without need for slides etc - you were absolutely right that you could do a great talk without pictures. I did notice quite a few people taking notes, and this isn't something I've ever seen (rarely one or two people do so), and also quite a number of new faces in the audience."
