Gar­den­ers pro­vide a feast for the eyes

Sum­mer show pro­vides a vis­ual treat for vis­i­tors

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

GAR­DEN­ERS win­ning re­cently show.

De­spite poor weather, and an in­flux of snails and slugs blight­ing gar­dens, in the run up to the show, a third of the so­ci­ety’s mem­bers still man­aged to ex­hibit some­thing at The Great Barn re­cently.

Roses and sweet peas were the high­lights this year of the Ruis­lip Cen­tral Hor­ti­cul­tural So­ci­ety’s an­nual event.

Also, the vis­ual dis­play, par­tic­u­larly ‘cot­tage gar­den’ favourites such as fox­gloves and al­li­ums, pro­vided a feast for the eyes.

Show man­ager Pa­tri­cia Swindells said: “Many of the vis­i­tors to the show linked the scents with happy mem­o­ries of gar­dens that be­longed to their par­ents and grand­par­ents.

“Hope­fully for the au­tumn show there will be more en­trants for the fruit and veg­etable sec­tion, but those who ex­hib­ited at the show did dis­play some high qual­ity ex­hibits.”

At the end of the show prizes were awarded by the deputy mayor Carol Melvin.

The deputy mayor and her hus­band An­drew were given a tour of the show by Mar­garet McIntosh, the chair­man of the so­ci­ety, and Gra­ham Goode, so­ci­ety sec­re­tary.

The deputy mayor, in her speech, said she was very im­pressed by the dis­plays and how im­por­tant it was for so­ci­eties, such as Ruis­lip Cen­tral Hor­ti­cul­tural, to ex­ist and con­tinue to work within the wider com­mu­nity. cel­e­brated sil­ver­ware at a sum­mer
