What a marvellous sight the exhibitions in the marquee were this year, all the more impressive after the dry growing season we’d had. Congratulations to all who entered. Without your enthusiasm there would be no Show. A big vote of thanks goes to all those who helped, particularly to Faith Ponsonby and her team of managers whose hard work throughout the year made sure the Show was so successful.Over the summer members have enjoyed trips to gardens in Pulborough, Kilmeston and Oxford, and visits to other members’ gardens in Emsworth and Prinsted. By the time you read this newsletter the talks programme will have restarted with a talk on Bulbs for Autumn Planting. In October the talk will be about the renovation of Gilbert White’s garden in Selbourne and in November we’ll be having a quiz along with drinks and nibbles.At the hut you can shop for garlic, autumn onion sets, mypex, bonemeal, plant protection netting and order your seeds. We’re open Sundays from 10 – 12 noon, but will be shut on December 16th, 23rd and 30thLyn Davies (Chair)
