On behalf of the patients, staff and volunteers, I would like to thank the members of the Howth and Sutton Horticultural Society for their very generous donation to our hospice garden. It is much appreciated and will be used wisely. We are putting our thinking hats on about planting something lovely for us all to enjoy for many seasons ahead.
Your thoughtfulness keeps us all going and the beauty of our garden feeds all our souls.
(Donation from our Spring Show profits)

What an amazing show on Saturday!!
And we couldn’t have done it without all the help we received – Thank you to the exhibitors, judges, stewards, caterers, helpers, organisers, plant-growers & sellers, and especially to the cleaners at the end – it was a great team!
Thanks to all our members who supported and attended the show last Saturday, bought plants & books, ate cake, enjoyed the exhibits and demonstration!
An incredibly successful show in one of the worst Springs ever!
The plant stall was crazy busy which means that lots of good plants have gone out into members’ and visitors’ gardens. It also means that all our growers’ cupboards are nearly bare of material for sale at the Autumn Show. We appeal to members to propagate plants for the autumn.
Now is also the time to think about what you might exhibit in the autumn!
A few lost & found items:
A navy cardigan
4 silver plastic vases
4 loaves of bread
A round tin of pins

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.
