Autumn Flower and Produce Show

Saturday 14 September at the Community Hall Oxted was a great day in every respect. This was the first show jointly presented by the Grow With Us Club (LODHS) and the Hurst Green Gardening Club. We enjoyed over 200 entries, and a great number of visitors throughout the afternoon. Here are a few photos of the event.
Thanks to all who made it possible.

Above are our two judges Carol and Sylvia doing their stuff with Morag and Linda.

Below are some shots of the excellent produce. You could almost eat it there and then

We see Hurst Green Show Secretary Leslie with their Chairman Jane commenting about the exhibits.

Hurst Green Chairman Jane presented the prizes. Here she is seen with Linda a prize winner as well as Show Secretary for the Grow With Us Club.

We all look forward to 2014.

Paul Grimmer came to give a talk and demonstrate how best to prune a whole range of plants trees and shrubs. He filled two tables with plant materials to show just what could and should be done.
One most important reminder is to use bypass secateurs correctly (ie: keep the anvil away from the cut). All most helpful.
