Annual Outing 2017 - Sun 4th June 2017.
This year the Horticultural Society visited Ashwood Nurseries at Kingswinford. Click the link for the garden centre website. John's Garden is attached to the nursery. His colleague walked us round the three acre garden explaining that John had developed an unusual way of pruning to show light through each plant and drawing the eye to the plants underneath. The garden flowed seamlessly round to each different bed. It was a very enjoyable tour. The nursery stock most of the plants in the garden, which we looked round later in the afternoon.
Committee, families and friends all helped to contribute to a successful show on Saturday 19th August 2017. Many thanks for all your help. We had many exhibits and the winners of all the categories can be found on the cup winners tab. Pictures of exhibits are dotted throughout the website. Thanks to the Mini Beast Road Show who entertained the children and adults with their interesting beasts!
Hope to see you next year: Saturday 18th August 2018.
