Autumn Abundance at Our Mini-Show

The unseasonably mild temperatures has meant that many of our flowering perennials and vegetable plants have continued to yield glorious blooms and produce well into late October. Nowhere was this more evident then at the beautiful displays at our mini-Autumn show. We had 15 exhibitors and 34 entries at the show, which was included as part of our AGM and evening lecture.

The Society would like to thank all the exhibitors and our judges, Pat Freemantle and Sharon Westhead. The entries proved very popular and brightened up the hall as well.
