Hi Everyone, 
I hope that you are as excited as I am about a new gardening year!  Just doing some tidying in the garden and the joy that a small clump of snowdrops and the scent from the lonicera fragrantissima brings is magical. 

Our Spring Show is on 6 April this year, and we are looking forward to a bumper number of entries.  The Summer Show is 13 July.  Due to the availability of the venue, we have a change for the Autmn show when it will be held on a Sunday for the first time, on 29 September downstairs at the Pond Square Chapel.  Those of you who are old enough to remember (and I include myself in this category) will recall we used the downstairs when we first moved from Highgate School. 

Another change we have made is that our AGM will be held online via Zoom for the first time, 
and we hope that more people will join us as in-person attendance has been very low in the last few years.  Again, this will be on a Sunday, afternoon,  17 March at 4 pm.  I will be sending the invitation out to members together with the Minutes, Agenda, and Accounts, which are also available on the website.  

So put the dates in your diary and spread the word, we hope to recruit many more members in the coming months and the best way is word of mouth!
.

I want to take the opportunity to thank all our amazing committee members and show helpers – without you the shows simply would not happen.

How to make a raised bed

Building raised beds is a great way to add more growing space to your garden, especially if your soil is poor. If you plan ahead, constructing them can be accomplished in a weekend, and you can quickly get growing fruit, vegetables, cut flowers or even small trees and shrubs.
