HOW DOES YOUR GARDEN GROW - NEW QUIZ DETAILS

This quiz is being sold as part of the Agincourt 600th anniversary celebrations in Erpingham, Norfolk. Full details of history and events can be found at www.erpingham.org . Sir Thomas of Erpingham led the longbow archers in the battle, and even managed to get a few lines in Shakespeare's HENRY V. He also contributed to the building of the local church, St. Mary's, but neglected to put in toilets, so all money raised from the quiz will go to this good and necessary cause. The answers to the clues include plants, weeds, trees, garden features, fauna, and a few songs.
