Friends' Newsletter for the University of Bristol Botanic Garden: Spring 2017

I have recently completed the Spring 2017 issue of the Friends' Newsletter for the University of Bristol Botanic Garden. This is an A5, 32 page, quarterly publication regularly designed by myself.

Here are the Editors comments from the latest issue: “Every gardener knows that the dark days of winter are there to provide a little respite from the work outside; a time to reflect on the successes and failures of the season just gone and to look forward to the next. A time to look through the seed catalogues and plan what to do as soon as the days are longer. Regardless of how bad the winter weather is, eventually the spring flowers start appearing which gives us all new hope.

“The new season is just starting and as reliably as the spring the Botanic Garden will open its gates wide again to welcome everyone back and celebrate with the fantastic Sculpture Festival at Easter. We hope you will enjoy reading this issue and look forward to the warmer weather.”

This year the Sculpture Festival takes place from Good Friday 14th April to Easter Monday 17 April, 10am to 5pm and is highly recommended.
