BOSHAM CHIDHAM & DISTRICT HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY

 June 2018

Storm Hector was threatening to spoil our party on the 14th June, but down in Bosham the sun came out at about 4pm and was still shining at 6.30 when the members started arriving. John and Jeni welcomed us all to their beautiful garden. Their roses were magnificent and the design of their garden is delightful. We were sheltered from the hot sunshine with a marquee which John had erected and from where he served many glasses of wine!  We all felt it was so nice to have time to socialise with other members – at the Village Hall we always restricted by timings and have to rush away as soon as the speaker has finished. There was much discussion about the various plants, some of which I had never seen before. Jeni is an amazing plantswoman and has so much gardening knowledge. We all agreed it was a lovely way to spend a warm June evening!

Next month, we are back to the Village Hall in Bosham for a talk by Alan Sargent entitled “Behind the Scenes at Chelsea” which sounds interesting. When you come to the meeting, please could I ask any of you who won cups at the Annual Show last year to bring them to the Meeting ready for this year’s show!  Goodness how time flies! Also we would welcome prizes you are able to donate to the Tombola Stall at the Show. By now you should have our Show Schedule with the entry form ready for your exhibits on the day. If you need one, let me know as I have a few spare – otherwise they are available at the usual outlets. It is also available from our website.

Enjoy this wonderful summer so far!!
