Geoff Hodge is a freelance garden writer and product tester. He studied botany at Reading University, under our president, Michael Keith-Lucas. His ebullient style, no-nonsense delivery, and humour, made for a great evening’s entertainment. He covered all aspects of buying and caring for houseplants, such as how to choose, feed, water, position, prune, propagate, repot and display plants. Although starting with the basics, it quickly became obvious that his knowledge was deep and wide, his advice succinct and practical, and his enthusiasm contagious. As a gardening product tester, he had numerous items to add to our raffle, all of which were snapped up with glee. Another speaker we wouldn’t mind hearing again one day!
