Club Members display at Rowdeford Garden Fair

Another lovely day at the Rowdeford Garden Fair, the weather was good to us, coupled with some unusual plants from the specialist traders, in great condition at good prices. It saw lots of the visitors struggling back to their cars with arms full of plants and trees. We were again positioned in front of the main school house and under the most impressive plane tree. I was so busy admiring the plants, I forgot to take any photographs from around the event. Luckily, there are plenty of pictures on previous events…….

It was a chance for members to display their trees and they were certainly admired by the public. We had many questions during the day and lots of comments like……… ‘Oh, I like that one’

It is a fund raising event for the school and it looked like a good turn out of visitors. We again had an area to work on a few trees which lead to several conversations regarding the keeping and growing of the trees. Many visitors went away saying that they were going to give it a go and seek out their own little tree. Details of our next ‘Winter Image show’ on 23rd Feb 2020 were available to take away as a reminder.

Again the club will be putting on a small display of trees at the Rowdeford Garden Fair 2019. It is held within the grounds of the school which is for special needs and a lovely setting. The school can be found off the A342 NW of Devizes.

A wide range of top quality trees, shrubs, perennials, alpines, climbers and exotic plants……. something for everyone.
