Northumberland 40th Anniversary SRGC/ AGS Show
« on: March 25, 2012, 08:47:49 PM »
Anyone know which nurseries will be attending the show?
Yemen, what a country ... Haraz mountains, Socotra, Sana'a, Hadramaut, the empty quarter.... a country of stunning, mind altering beauty...and the friendliest of people.

The eighth nursery, which Christine didn't know about bacuse it wasn't finalised when our newsletter went out, is Harperley Hall Farm Nurseries, who are local to the area.
We've had our first entry folks (a certain exiled Scotsman who frequents these pages) so it's shaping up to be an excellent show.  ;)

Susan and I expect to be there and I hope to give you a call soon with some entries for the show Peter :)

For those unfamiliar with Mary Green plants, they are based only a few miles from us in the grounds of Hornby Castle. The nursery is not usually open except by appointment. They are a great couple and they specialise in woodland plants. They have been at Blackpool show for the last two years.

Just to keep your taste buds working. A great day out, a well deserved Forrest Medal for Chris Lilley and........the cake. I suspect there isn't much left now.
