THE main topic at the recent meeting was the ''Hot Water'' treatment of stools. The general opinion was this resulted in more healthy cuttings.

This was followed by each member giving his formula for the rooting compost.

There were a number of variations but all amounted to the same conclusion - peat and clean gritty sand to a ratio of 50/50.

The next meeting will be the AGM on Wednesday, March 9, at Shirley Community Centre, Stratford Road, Shirley at 8pm. Members are requested to make every effort to attend.
