For those of you who visit our two annual shows, you will have admired the work of Cecil and his group of wood turners who regularly exhibit. They have a sale every year in Baldoyle Library, all proceeds go to the Altzheimers Society, and it is on this week – every day.
If you are short of a Christmas present, drop into Baldoyle Library any day until the weekend of the 21st December 2019
Happy Christmas, and look forward to another year of gardening in 2020.
STOP PRESS from the plant stall team!
More great plants to whet your appetite in addition to the already impressive collection! How about a lovely pale blue Iris ‘Jane Phillips’; a stately Dierama ,or a glowing golden Carex. Make a statement with a bold Leucanthemella, brighten a shaded bed with Pulmonaria ‘June Blake’, bring spring glory to damper spots with a sea of candelabra primulas. Impress your neighbours with a banana, an exotic palm or a black stemmed bamboo – and many more gems. Something of interest for everyone and all at bargain prices! Spread the news! Come along and bring your friends.
Further donations for the plant stall will be appreciated. The bigger the variety of available plants, the better. These can be brought to St Nessan’s School after 4pm. on Friday August 23rd or as early as possible on the morning of the show. Please label clearly or seek advice if you are unsure. A brief description and picture is always useful.
Looking forward to seeing you on Saturday with lots of friends.
Janet and David Jeffrey.

If our shows are to succeed we need the support of our members and the local community, both as exhibitors and visitors. Don’t be reluctant to have a go this year. One entry or more from every member or visitor would guarantee a super show!
Every entry makes a show and there are classes to suit all.
A heart-felt thank you to all of you, visitors, exhibitors, judges and helpers who contributed to make the show a success. The show is one of our shop windows and is a real contribution to the social fabric of Fingal. Without all of you the show would not happen, so thank you all once again.

Howth & Sutton Horticultural Society Show Committee
With the help of “David Nolan Gardening”, we planted a host of Spring bulbs and revamped a flower bed which was created in Scoil Neasan, in 1993 to mark the Golden Jubilee of the Howth and Sutton Horticultural Society. We have a great relationship with Pobailscoil Neasan, where we hold our Annual Spring & Autumn Shows each year.
