The Plant Sale

A spring Bank Holiday heatwave didn't stop a large number of plant buyers descending on Hethersett Village hall on Sunday, 5th May for the the Spring Plant Sale, the first of the NPH group sales of 2018. After buying their plants many visitors enjoyed home made refreshments with bacon rolls being one of the favourite orders! A new gallery of photos is linked under previous events.

Over the last few weeks there have been two further events for members to enjoy. Firstly on Wednesday and Thursday 26th and 27th July Simon Harrup led a Wild Flower Walk on Buxton Heath. This was followed by the group Summer Social at Lexham Hall on the evening of Friday 4th August. Members enjoyed Pimms, a selection of canapes and wine and then wandered around the gardens on what was a very pleasant evening. Pictures from both events are listed under previous events.

Saturday 30th September saw a propogation day being held in Linda Hall's garden, attended by a small group of members, which everyone seemed to throughly enjoy.

The Norfolk Plant Heritage Student Bursary is presented each year. On Sunday 22nd October Ben Simmons was presented with his cheque for £150 by NPH Chair, Janet Sleep. Following the presentation an entertaining talk was given to members by Nick Bailey on the trials and tribulations of building a show garden at the annual Chelsea Show.
