Autumn 2018
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 16 th , 23 rd  and 30 th   Lyn Davies (Chair)
