The talk is about Seagrass in the Fowey Estuary by Clare Marshall from Falmouth Marine School.

We are delighted to tell you that our Jubilee Oak tree has found a permanent home on the triangle at the junction just past Kingole Farm. The planting was attended by committee members and helpers, and everyone agreed that this will be a splendid commemoration of a wonderful 2012 Jubilee year. (see photo below in News item for April 11th)


April is a good time to sow tomatoes, cucumbers, and peppers. However, beware of the cold: its better to sow them into pots in a frost-free greenhouse or cold frame for planting out later on. Weeds: it only takes one day of sunshine to have them running riot, so get on top of them now. 


Saturday 18th May, Lerryn Memorial Hall.

Only a month to go before the best plant sale in the area, where you can pick up a  bargain and gain some useful gardening tips. Keep nurturing your plant donations to help us raise money for the Annual show. We appreciate your efforts and can guarantee a great morning in the hall with delicious refreshments, and a good catch up with friends. 


Saturday 3rd August, Lerryn Memorial Hall

This year is our 63rd show and to celebrate this, we have an exciting new category in the Novelty Class. After much debate and advice from our in-house expert we are looking for the ‘Tastiest Tomato’. It’s a challenge, and one that we are looking forward to judging. So often we are beguiled by a shiny, red orb only to be disappointed by a tomato with no flavour. Here’s your chance to prove to us all that a tomato can have good looks as well as great taste.

Show schedules will be available from early May so that if you would like to enter, you can start planning ahead.  One of the children’s classes this year is called ‘An Edible Rainbow’ – a lovely title that should get young creative hearts beating faster, and in the Decorative class we have, amongst other categories, ‘Green with Envy’, and ‘Hot, Hot, Hot’. Subjects for this years’ photography competition will be: ‘Shadows’ for the Under  16’s, and ‘Happiness’ in the Adult class. We are delighted to announce that Canon John Halkes will be opening the show for us at 2.30pm. 


Please don’t forget to return your prizewinners’ cups to Sue and John Hancock . 


Pippa Greenwood, BBC Gardeners’ Question Time panellist and BBC Gardeners’ World columnist, will be visiting Trago Mills in Newton Abbot on Thursday 25th April between 11 and 3pm. Whilst there she will be talking to customers and answering questions. For more information phone 01626 821111 or visit www.trago.co.uk.
