THE PLANT SALE AND COFFEE MORNING
Saturday 16th May, Lerryn Memorial Hall. 10.30am
May we ask all our friends who enjoy the August show to sow some extra seeds and plant more than you need this month, so that we can benefit from your efforts and sell your excess plants to raise funds to put on the 65th Annual show.
The plant sale and coffee morning is a famously popular event where we like to catch up with friends and neighbours over a coffee – and bag a few plant bargains for the garden.
THE ANNUAL PRODUCE SHOW
Saturday 1st August, Lerryn Memorial Hall.
We’ve thought up some wonderful categories this year for the children’s classes, including “A scarecrow” – just as long as it isn’t bigger than 1metre! “A Clockface” (using fruit and vegetables), and a decorated plant pot. We’ll keep you posted over the coming months on other classes and news, so watch this space!
CALL FOR CUPS
Please don’t forget to return your prizewinner’s cups to Sue Hancock .
OUR IN-HOUSE EXPERT SAYS…
Don’t be fooled by the lovely spring weather we’ve been enjoying lately! April and May is an excellent time to sow all sorts of vegetables including runner beans, carrots, beetroot, lettuce and broad beans, but beware, the night-time cold and frosts can still be harmful to early plantings. And now is the time to weed, weed, weed, so don’t forget to sharpen your hoes!
