GARDENING hero Mick Poultney will be giving useful tips to green-fingered pub goers in Stourbridge next week.

Gardening Banter and Booze will be held at Claptrap, in the High Street, Stourbridge, on Tuesday June 6 with doors opening at 7pm for an 8pm start.

The free evening will be hosted by Mr Poultney, who is chairman of Abbey Road Allotments and Colley Gate Gardening Club.

He will cover topics including composting, raised beds, no dig cultivation, mycorrhizal fungi and anything else gardening-related he can fit in.

This talk takes place ahead of Mr Poultney’s latest appearance at BBC Gardener’s World Live, which runs from June 15-18.
