The Late Summer Show is on:
Saturday 3rd September 2022
. . . and is held in the United Church Hall, East Street, Bridport. Our Shows are the highlights of our year. The good news is that you don’t have to be a gardener to take part, and you don’t even have to be a member as all the classes are ‘open’.
We have traditional horticulture classes plus –
▪ Can you cook, knit, crochet or sew?
▪ Can you paint, arrange flowers, make things, recycle things?
▪ The photography classes are very popular.
There is probably a class for you but if you think we haven’t got the class for you, let us know. We would love to hear from you.
On Show days we have a Charity Plant Stall outside the hall from 9.00 am – 12.30 pm. Members are invited to contribute plants and other saleable garden equipment. The Plant Stalls have raised hundreds of pounds for local charities.
Donations for the stall can be dropped off at the hall on the Friday afternoon before the show, or early on the Saturday morning. Plant offerings can be varied – ideas include anything from seedlings (floral or vegetable), rooted cuttings, herbs, annuals, biannual or perennials but should be of “carrying away size”.
It would be very helpful if plants could be named – we usually end up with some “mystery” items which cause much hilarity and head scratching! We can also sell small garden tools as long as they have been cleaned and are in working order. No gardening books or old gardening magazines please.
