Members and Friends –

WE NEED YOUR HELP, could you please split up and pot up some plants, sow a few more seeds ready for the sale. The sale price of the plants is divided 50/50 between the provider and the club this helping to fund speakers for our club meetings. Plants where possible need to be delivered (via Helen) the day before the sale and need to have “TWO LABELS” one with the plant name and the second with the price and the sellers name. Please give me a ring if you need more information/help and to arrange delivery.

2022 ANNUAL OPEN SHOW
