We have decided to take this year quarter by quarter so all our events for the first quarter will all be online and we hope will keep you entertained during this lock-down. It may be too cold to get out in our gardens but we can still plan and enjoy what is to come.
We will be holding a virtual Spring Show this year, and we will send you all a Show Schedule soon. You can take a picture of your entry, and we will have them judged.
We cannot plan for a plant sale during lockdown, and many of us are over-wintering plants from a cancelled Autumn Sale. It will happen as soon as it is safe to do so, so please do continue to keep plants for us – the Hospice will badly need our donation when it does happen. If you are planting seeds, maybe plan a few extra for the plant sale!
