Happy New Year As chair of trustees I wish a happy new year for everybody involved with Culpeper Garden – our members, plot holders, volunteers, trustees, donors and garden-workers.  We are pleased to start the year with two new trustees, Jeff Patti and Paul Thompson, and a new Project worker, Jody Gillett, who will guide selected members into the skills of growing and cooking vegetables.  For many people a new year is heralded by snowdrops and aconites, already making an appearance.  For me the pleasure lies in the blossom of the winter-flowering viburnum.  Come and admire the specimen by Culpeper garden gate, with its delicious scent.   Rose-red flowers open to a flushed pink and white.  It is an inspiration – like the rest of the garden – to keep us happy for the next twelve months.
