98th Year Emsworth Horticutural Society is celebrating  its
The   weather   on   August   Bank   Holiday   was   good,   so   all the    months    of    planning    paid    off    and    produced    a wonderful   show.      It’s   not   just   me   saying   that!      We   had plenty    of    feedback    from    various    sources    praising    all aspects   of   the   Show.      I   was   very   impressed   with   the enthusiasm   of   the   show   committee   members   and   the huge   amount   of   work   they   put   in   to   the   preparations   and staging   of   the   Show.      Attendance   was   good;   at   the   peak buses    were    bringing    people    from    the    park    and    ride every   10   minutes   or   so.      The   entries   in   the   horticultural competitions   were   up   by   about   200   on   last   year   and   the standard   was   very   high.      It   really   seemed   we   catered   for all    the    family    and    the    Horticultural    Society’s    aim    of encouraging interest in horticulture was achieved. Our   Autumn   season   of   talks   began   with   an   informative talk   by   Peter   Gregory   who   brought   us   up   to   date   on recent   developments   in   the   genetics   of   fruit   and   also   at Wisley   where   a   new   science   block   is   being   built   with facilities for visitors as well as for RHS research staff.  Finally   don’t   forget   to   visit   the   hut   for   a   seed   catalogue, garlic   and   onion   sets,   and   anything   else   you   need   for your garden during autumn and winter. Lyn Davies (Chair)  
The Hut Seed   catalogues   for   King’s   Seeds   are   available   at the   Hut   now.         If   you   order   your   seeds   through   the EHS   you   will   get   a   40%   refund   on   the   price   you pay   in   the   form   of   a   voucher   to   spend   at   the   hut   just   in   time   to   buy   seed   potatoes,   onion   sets   and shallots.      Seed   order   forms   have   to   be   returned   to the hut by January 21st 2018.
