PLANT SALE SUCCESS!
May 14, 2023
We had another very successful and enjoyable plant sale at the Market House on 13 May. The proceeds will go a long way to running the club's events for the year. So thank you to everyone who brought plants and bought plants. Now all we need to do is get them planted!
PLANT SALE AT THE MARKET HOUSE

It's that time of year again - time to get some plants divided and seedlings pricked out - bring them along to our annual plant sale on 13th May. Your plant donations are always welcome, and you can grab a bargain while you are there. The prices are very tempting! A wide range of plants are usually available, grown by our members and friends.

We held our AGM, Seed Exchange and Quiz night. After a short bit of AGM business, Erica ran one of her fabulous quizzes, with a particular highlight being the identification of around 20 seed heads that she had brought along. One lucky member won the member's prize draw for a £50 voucher. And congratulation to Joy Payne, who won the trophy for most points in the 2022 Flower of the Month Competition.
Next month we renew our membership for 2023, and the draft programme is now on available on the drop-down menu above.

Our last meeting was a visit to the gorgeous Westbrook House in West Bradley on one of those early May evenings that fills your heart. The light and the gentle warmth held such promise of the joys to come. The garden was lovely too – with an almost adventure when we were nearly joined by the heifers next door! It's an NGS (yellow book) garden and has really earned this status.
Our next meeting is Wednesday June 1st at Caryford when Bridgit Wadey’s talk is ‘Gardening and Wildlife’. She is well qualified to talk on this subject so its promising to be a great evening.
We are having another plant sale on Jubilee Friday, June 3rd , from 2-6 at Cary Place on North Street in Castle Cary. Its part of the 15 ‘Hidden Gardens’ that are opened on that afternoon with monies raised for the Caryford Hall extension fund. There are tiny private courtyard gardens along with the larger ones. It should be a lovely afternoon so if you want inspiration or just a rest from doing your own, come along and see for yourselves.
Our August 6th Annual Show schedule is available. Its open to everyone and has a HUGE variety of classes so there really is something for everyone. Do take a look and see.
Wishing you all Happy Gardening and remember: There’s no such things as a weed, its just a wild flower that growing in the ‘wrong’ place. It doesn’t rain in pots, use a saucer and water from below. And finally that gardening is not meant to be a torture, its your garden so garden it for you. Enjoy!
MAY VISIT TO WESTBROOK HOUSE, WEST BRADLEY
April 27, 2022
May's meeting is no longer as stated in the printed programme because the speaker needed to change the date. So we have swapped May for June and next week is to be a garden visit instead.
We have a private visit on Wednesday May 4th to Westbrook House, West Bradley. We will need to be there at 6.45pm to allow enough daylight to get a good hour and more to look around. Full details have been emailed to members.
See Trips page for details and photo.
