Over a period of some 20 years, the Robinsons created and nurtured a wild flower meadow at their home in Monmouthshire. Ladies Smocks, bluebells  and orchids along with many other species thrive in the Northridge Meadows. The talk will be illustrated with photographs from Northridge Meadows - a registered Wildlife Site - which will open to the public on 16th June.
