John Negus' Gardening Talks

Gardening Expert John Negus is our man 'on the road' - visiting gardening clubs and WI groups (and even cruise ships), dispensing his broad gardening knowledge (and some great Haxnicks prizes too!)

Trained at Wisley Gardens and Merrist Wood Horticultural colleges, photo-journalist John Negus (Dip. Hort. Wisley) enjoys sharing his passion for gardening and other outdoor pursuits.
Specialising in trees, shrubs and climbers, he lectures regularly, with slides, at gardening clubs, W.I.s and many other societies. He is a member of the Surrey, Hampshire, Berkshire and Kent Federations of Judges and Lecturers… and is on the R.H.S. list of Speakers.
He answers e-mail and ‘snail-mail’ queries for ‘Amateur Gardening’, broadcasts regularly on Radio Surrey and Sussex - as well as escorting groups around gardens. His gardening talks are legendary and great fun, well worth attending (and not just for the prizes)!

AUGUST: After chatting to the Hampshire-based North Warnborough Horticultural Society on achieving year-round colour in the garden, I presented a quiz in which the winner left with a Haxnicks Easy Tunnel Giant Net Cloche, ideal for protecting crops from insects, birds and other animals. 
JULY: "Winchester Horticultural Society were a wonderful audience for my talk ‘Gardening with Flair’ – how to make your plot riveting all year round. Afterwards, I conducted a fun quiz in which the winner left with a Haxnicks Giant Easy Micromesh Tunnel.
It’s ideal for keeping crops free from pests."
MAY "After chatting to the Alton Hampshire Gardening Club on Conservatory Plants, I conducted a fun quiz in which the winner left with a pack of Haxnicks Rapid Root Trainers and Cane Toppers."  

APRIL "After chatting to the Old Basing, Hampshire W. I. on ‘Twelve Months of Colour’, I concluded with a fun quiz that saw the winner leaving happily with a Haxnicks Giant Net Easy Tunnel.
The Haxnicks mail-order catalogue is packed with all you’ll need to garden well."
MARCH "After chatting to the Christmas Pie, Normandy, Guildford W. I. on colour in the garden, I conducted a fun quiz in which the winner left with a splendid kit of Haxnicks’  Root trainers – ideal for sweet peas and other long-rooted plants – and a pack of brightly hued cane tops. Well done Haxnicks for stocking what gardeners really need!"
