BULBS FOR 2018 Spring Show
Members of the Society will be given their bulbs to grow on for the Spring Show, at the October meeting, the 17th.
          This year we have chosen a Narcissus called                  'Sir Winston Churchill'


2017 A SPECIAL YEAR

The Fuchsia plug-plants will be available for members to collect at the meeting on the 18th April. The sooner you collect them, the sooner you can start training them!!

There will be a Committee Meeting at 7pm on Wednesday 19th April, at Evelyn's house.

In 2017 we will celebrate the Golden Anniversary of the Preston Gardening Society, and every effort will be made to link in to the occasion.

In addition to the Summer Show, it is hoped that the March Daffodil Show for the Society sponsored bulbs will have a 'Golden' touch to it as well.

 Later in the year, on Tuesday September 19th, there will be a personal appearance of TV celebrity, Christine Walkden.
This event will be in addition to the normal Society programme, and further details will be made available in due course.
Tickets will cost £12 each

Tuesday 15th November
The Society's next meeting sees Ian Lowe visit us with a presentation titled 'A Fun Christmas with Ian'

Me thinks he's going to give us a few decorative floral and foliage tips relative to the approaching Christmas period. It's our last Tuesday meeting of the year, so let's have a good turn out.


Saturday 10th September

I've posted the Schedule for next Summer Show on the appropriate page.
Take a look, and start planning now which Classes you intend entering, and which other Classes you COULD enter.

Plan what you need to do, and when you need to do it.

Let's make our Golden Jubilee Year Show one to remember
(For the right reasons!!)

ANNUAL SHOW
SATURDAY 20TH AUGUST 2016

For whatever reason, the 46th Annual Show of the Preston Gardening Society proved to be disappointing. 

Whether the appalling weather on the day of the Show prevented potential exhibitors from attending, or whether the weather leading up to the event meant that exhibits were spoiled or damaged, we will probably never know.

What has certainly been decided it that we have to draw a line under things and move on to our next Summer Show on Saturday 19th August  2017.

PLEASE ENTER THE 2017 SHOWS

The earlier you start to plan for the Show the better, and to that end, revised schedules will be published as soon as possible.

There will, as usual, be lots of Classes for things other than garden produce, so please support the Show in this Special Golden Year,
and give the Society something to build on for the future.

Thank you
Steve Halliwell
Chairman
