Wickhambrook Horticultural Society Reports

JUly - august 2008

For our April meeting, we had one of our own members. Sally Swift, to demonstrate flower arranging with fruit and vegetables. The evening proved very popular and we had a large number of visitors and friends to watch Sally. She used lots of different fruits and vegetables – grapes, tomatoes, small oranges, mushrooms. Strawberries, etc, etc. to make three very different arrangements – even using a gourd for one of the containers! The arrangements were raffled at the end of the evening. Sally made it look very easy (which I am sure it is not) and we went home full of plans to have a go ourselves.

On Monday, 12th May we have our Annual Bring and Buy Sale and Coffee Evening and members were asked to bear this in mind when they started tidying their own gardens. Our last two sales have been excellent, but this can only be the case if we have lots of plants, cuttings and seedlings to sell.

Then on Monday 16th June we have a talk on “Hardy Bulbs throughout the Year” given by Frances Mount and then coming up on the 12th July there will be our Summer Show. Free Schedules are now available from the Shop or from Jackie Fieldsend (8 Croft Close), so please pick one up and have a look through it. Maria Sumner, our Treasurer, has re-designed the Schedules this year and they look very attractive and smart. As usual there are sections on Flower Arrangements, flowers and vegetables, cookery, handicrafts and sections for the children. We cannot put on a Show without your help, so go on HAVE A GO.

You will notice that we are not having the Competition this year for the best cottage garden and best flower garden. For the past couple of years we have only had a few entries and the committee feel that this competition cannot be staged any longer as it is embarrassing to ask the Judge to pick two winners out of only four entries. The judge often comments that there are lots of lovely gardens in Wickhambrook but, try as we may, we have not been able to get people to enter. Our apologies to the people who did like to enter these competitions and many thanks for supporting them in the past.
