It was so lovely to see lots of people at the various events as part of Spring Fest. Timothy Walker was very engaging and interesting about the way that plants help us, and how we can help them. And then the Spring Show was busy and colourful in the way it always used to be before the pandemic! Thanks to all who came along, who entered exhibits, ate cake or helped in any way. We can't put on these events without a lot of community support, and it was greatly appreciated. We will be making a substantial donation to One Can from the proceeds, it's great to know that this excellent charity will be benefitting from everyone's generosity.
And now it's time to plan for the next big Seer Green Gardeners event, the ever popular Plant Sale. This year it will be on Saturday May 14th between 2 and 4pm. We are going to run it in the same way as last year, with plants available from an experienced plantsman who produces excellent quality bedding and other greenery. We will also have someone selling clematis. On top of these, we are going to have the bring and take aspect to the sale again. If you have any extra seedlings, vegetable plants or any other sort of plant that you think will be appreciated by others, please bring them along at 1.30 on May 14th to the Baptist Church car park.
If you are just coming to buy, then please don't arrive before 2pm, to allow us to set up ready for you. The bring and take part of the sale can take cashless payments as well as cash, but the 'new' plants need to be paid for by cash or cheque only please, so make sure that you come equipped!
We started a new idea at the beginning of this month, of having a regular meet up in the Three Horseshoes pub at 8pm on the first Tuesday of the month. This is for anyone who would like to meet up with other gardeners for a chat about growing or just to meet new people. We will be holding the next one on Tuesday 3rd May at 8pm, let us know if you'd like to come along. All are welcome.
Looking forward to seeing you at one of our events soon.
Jane Smith - Chair of Seer Green Gardeners
