Congratulations to everyone involved with the June Plant Sale. It raised a much bigger sum than last year. This goes to pay for the expenses of our two Shows.
Thank you to the
bringers of plants, the clearers out of garden equipment, the providers of
the trees (walnut and fig, both now settled in WG) and the generous donators
of surplus stock and young vegetables.
Thank you to the buyers who created such a friendly sale with quips and tips being traded.
Thank you to Sally Hicks for the donation of her open garage so that we could have teas in comfort and to the Tea Team who made the cakes and teas.
Congratulations to Ann Beasley who won 2012's Table Top competition for most points awarded for a selection of five stems from the garden displayed to best effect. She entered each month and clocked up the points.
Please check your
Schedules with its explanations of how to be sure to get maximum points in

All members have these Schedules but if mislaid then they can be obtained at WG Stores from behind the counter or print off the WG website. Non members can also enter the Show and so will need the Schedule too.
At the June Show we will be having a smaller plant sale including dahlias, delayed because of the harsh spring.
Take heart and browse through the Schedule and find something to enter. Everyone has had to suffer the same weather but your plants might have fared better. Microclimate, soil and care all contribute. Be daring and enter. One of village life's rich experiences!
Last year we feared a thin Show due to the dreadful weather but people found they did have entries and what a pleasure that Show was. Let us not get disheartened by the Nature's vagaries. We are British after all.
