Chenies Manor Plant Fair - Sunday 14th July 2019

Chenies 2018We are pleased to have a stand again at the 2019 Plant Fair at Chenies Manor. Our display last year was very traditional, with lots of grasses, hostas and ivy to create a cool looking border on a very hot Sunday. The white flowers in the display are Gauras, Scabiosa incisa 'Kudo White' and Leucanthemum 'Miss Muffet'. We also had a group of Centaurea "Silver Feather' and the soft mauve flowers picked up the colour of the lavenders. Many thanks to Farnham Common Nursery who loaned us all the plants and the team who worked hard to put the display together. We are looking forward to creating a new display in 2019.




Eastcote House Gardens Summer Picnic - Saturday 8th June 2019

Lynn and Steve

We also took part in the Eastcote House Gardens Summer Picnic on Saturday June 8th. Although the day was rather blustery to begin with, the sun came out and we had a good day, talking to lots of people about our Group and the Hardy Plant Society, handing out seed and selling lots of plants. We had a lot of interest in what we do and it was a very enjoyable day.

Our stand was next to Prada Rustica, which produces unusual stone planters and which is run by our Group Secretary. The planters are perfect for displaying your hardy plants.
