Wisborough Green Horticultural Society Everyone is invited to The Plant Sale Saturday 10th May 2014 at 2 pm on the Millennium Green near the Cricketers Pub. Last year the Sale was terrific, hectic and full of gardening advice and laughter, followed by coffee and homemade cake. Without your contributions in all aspects it would not have been so productive in fund raising or fun. Plants can be dropped off in the morning on site on the gravel space by the open garage. Do bring what you can even though it may not look great. Indoor and outdoor plants all welcome as are garden sundries and pots. Bring a friend or new neighbour for the experience! With any luck the fritillaries will still be nodding around the Sundial, provided by the WGHS for everyone's pleasure. On Sunday 15th June, it is our delightful Horticultural Show. The last two year's terrible weather did not deter entries then, so what is in store for this year? Look around and have a go. Garden plants and indoor plants can be entered as well as early vegetables. Everyone's microclimate growing conditions are different so your growing conditions may suit the weather we will get. Flower arrangers can do a miniature 10cmx10cmx10cm or a “Woodland Walk” or for the men, be flummoxed by “Terracotta”. Bakers of all ages might bake Four chocolate brownies, win a prize and eat the exhibit for tea. Everyone in the Junior Section could grow three lettuces in a container – only ages displayed. Anti slug defences at the ready. An Eighth Wonder of the World for Wisborough Green is very challenging for the under 16s or is it? All classes are open to ALL including children (who may enter free of charge). The junior section provides for three different age groups. Do look up the classes and rules in the Handbook which all members have but which are also available at the Village Shop. The rules are to help exhibitors. Above all. come and enjoy the exhibits and think about exhibiting. muttering that you grew one even better or made a better scone?
