• Gardeners are generous by nature and Anne is generous with her knowledge and her wit. Her presentation on Why Gardens is serious but filled with humour. My husband did not doze off - now that is saying something
  • "Your talk was excellent, well illustrated and very well received." Rosie, Welwyn Garden Horticultural Society
  • Anne entertained us with stories about Capel and her time there. I'm sure many of our members will visit, or re-visit, Capel Manor during the Summer (2015) and find it more enjoyable
  • "Anne's Wildlife talk was very interesting. I never realised how much we had lost and what is still at risk. I intend to use what I have learnt in my own garden to encourage the birds & bees." Speaker's Secretary Lea Valley U3A Garden Group
  • "Thank you so much again for giving New Vistas your excellent talk yesterday, our members greatly appreciated it.  You do have a lovely, clear voice which is easily heard;  not always a feature prominent in a lot of our speakers. I will hope very much that you will pay us another visit next year"- Juliet
  • Thank you so much for a really interesting talk this morning.  I'm sure many of our members will visit, or re-visit, Capel Manor during the Summer and find it more enjoyable with the information you passed on - Viv Booth Verulam U3A
  • "Thank you so much for your inspirational talk about your work – the audience were really impressed - and for helping people to recognise how they can use different tools to continue their own gardening if injury or infirmity strikes."   Carole Wilcox - Cuffley Horticultural Society
  • "Many thanks for coming to give your very interesting talk to the Hertford National Trust on the ''Ancient Gardens Before The Common Era' last Monday.  I know the members I spoke to thoroughly enjoyed it" - Diana
  • "Thank you so much for coming to speak to us last night.   Members mentioned to me how much they enjoyed your talk, and we'll definitely consider another of your talks." Louise Puckeridge WI
  • "Anne has stimulated us to use our minds and explore different horticultural concepts relating them to our lives." Peggy STH Group Member at Capel Manor
  • "Now don't go home without me booking another talk for next year" Elizabeth - Goffs Oak Horicultural Society
  • Another stimulating talk that made me and my fellow gardeners think. Anne does not talk - she imparts knowledge and involves her audience. I asked for a talk on Roses but never thought she would go back to the age of the dinosaur. I have invited her back knowing that whatever topic I choose as speaker's secretary Anne will deliver - Ida, Hitchen Horticultural Society
  • Thank you so much for your really interesting and exceptional talk which is much appreciated
  • "Just wanted to thank you again for such an interesting talk today. There was a lot of feedback from the members of the group saying they really enjoyed it & found it very informative" - Mary Kelly Croxley U3A
  • "It was fascinating learning about the tricks of the trade behind some show gardens etc. We'd love to have you back again for a different talk. I'll be in touch."  Carole WGC/Hatfield U3A Garden Group
  • "Thank you so much for your talk - excellent feedback - all 'excellent' or 'v good' votes! I will be back to you for next year's talks, and I will be happy to recommend you." Brenda, Speaker's Secretary St Albans U3A

  • On Bulbs & Rhizomes - "The most frequent  response to your talk was that it was fascinating and they had no idea how important those plants were. There were also three  retired pharmacists in the audience who enjoyed it as well !" - Joe, Speakers Secretary
