Reg and Graham volunteered to man the display at the Stratton Festival this year in Grange Drive, Swindon. A warm day and a big crowd took in the small and not so small trees. Many taking notes about Reg’s Open Garden on the 27th July and also details of the next ‘Winter Image’ Bonsai show to be held by the Swindon club on the 23rd Feb 2020.
It’s that time of year again for Jeff and Reg’s open gardens. Jeff is an RHS judge for fruit, flowers and Veg and Reg is an RHS judge for bonsai also known for the many Gold medal displays at the Chelsea Flower show. A unique opportunity to wander the gardens and get up close to the magnificent trees.
Time is running out to submit your entry for the show. Email details and some photographs to Dan Barton, soonest to be considered for the show in August
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…
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.
Pictures from last years event…..
