As in previous years, the Middlesex Group was invited to have a display stand at Chenies Manor Plant and Garden Fair showing examples of popular hardy plants. The day is primarily used to promote the Society and canvas for new members. Although we do not sell plants from our stand, this is a very popular event supported by many well known specialist nurseries selling their own selections of plants.

After the initial planning stage, we selected the plants we needsd from our sponsor Farnham Common Nurseries. We used trellis in an offset V to create an interesting shape, cut a couple of windows in it and placed Fatsia ‘Cobweb’ as our main focal point. The planting was kept light and airy with Sanguisorba and Gaura and grounded with Hostas and ferns. We were able to offer advice and encouragement to a number of visitors, many of whom bought our seeds (donated by members) and cards.

My thanks to all for making it a very successful and enjoyable day.
