HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY

The village hall was once again full of plants and people as the annua plant sale took place on 13th May. Several members arrived early at the hall to take in donations and to ensure all were labelled with their variety and priced; tables were organised to take plants according to their type, and it was good to see that this year there was a varied selection of vegetables. John Baker brought along some interesting hostas, and Keith Williamson (ably assisted by his wife Mavis) set out his stall with all sorts of plants that he had raised himself.
Despite a drop in the number of plants a good amount was raised for the society. However, in order to increase both the amount and variety of plants at this event we would urge you all to consider potting up some of those flowers that have self seeded everywhere in the summer and also to keep some of those perennials that you may divide in the autumn. Perhaps you grow things from seed too; there are always more than you needd. All of these would be gratefully received in May next year, and if you should decide to come alon to buy something do please come along early. The sale always starts at 10 am but invariably there isn't much left at 11am!.

A busy summer lies ahead with two coach trips, a social evening in a member's garden on Thursday 10th August, and on Saturday 1st July the Summer SHow.

Saturday 9th September is the Autumn Show which is usually the biggest of the year so do come along or better still, put in an entry. All the details are in the Society's Programme and Schedule.
