Saturday 21st September – Plant Sale 10.00am
Lecture starts at 11.00am
50/50 Plant Sale: (Hall opens at 9.30am) followed by:
Charlie Pridham – ‘Climbing Plants’
Charlie and his wife, Liz, run Roseland House Nursery in Chacewater, near Truro, Cornwall where they hold two National Plant Collections: Clematis viticella and Lapageria rosea. They also grow a great range of other exciting climbing plants and conservatory plants, so this talk should inspire us to cover that bare wall or fence in something unusual and interesting.
The 50/50 Plant Sale prior to the lecture at our September meeting each autumn is a popular event. The Group keeps half the money taken and returns the other half to the seller. The hall will be open from 9.30am – 10.00am to receive your plants to sell.
Please ensure that each plant has two identical labels, both of them bearing the name of the plant, your name and the price. One will be removed so that the amount you are owed can be totted up and given to you at the end of the meeting, when you can also reclaim any unsold plants and your labels (tip: write in pencil on the labels so that they may be reused).
Selling will take place between 10.00am and 11.00am, at which point the lecture begins. Offers of help with selling on the day will be most welcome.
Plants for Sale: Members may also pre-order plants direct from Charlie Pridham and he will bring them to the meeting. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01872 560451 to pre-order.
