Well, I took the camera with good intentions but was so engrossed in the talk and then wandering through the garden with Phil who came along to pick up ideas for his new property I took no pics.

Good basic diagrams and talk about planting fruit trees with understory plants and giving examples of good plants to use. The info will end up being posted on the YCG website I would imagine.

Sounds rivetting ... hope to see some pix and a report later on. Who is Phil?
