Sunday 30th April - Annual Spring Show Cancelled!!

We are sad to announce that this years show on the 30th April has had to be cancelled due to a lack of plants. This has been caused by a very, very, mild winter and most Auricula have flowered very early. Your committee has contacted all exhibitors who have confirmed their lack of plants suitable for competition.


Monday 1st May - From 10am til 4pm. We are pleased to announce Emma and Monty have invited us back to the Walled Nursery to display our Auricula’s in a “Theatre” in their newly re-furbished Green house. This will enable us to all meet up and to end this season on a positive note and to allow members to display any remaining plants in a non competitive atmosphere, also to sell surplus plants.


Saturday 2nd September - From 11am til 2pm. We are delighted to welcome back Steve Popple who is going to give us a talk on breeding his varieties of Blue Selfs:- Jac, Blue Cliffe, Finlay Thomas to name a few. Steve has produced some real prizewinning Selfs, some still are winning today..


Saturday 28th October - From 11pm til 2pm. Kent group AGM.
We would like to welcome back Kit Strange, a Botanical Horticulturist from Kew gardens in London. She will be giving us a talk about the “Floral treasures of Eastern Turkey ”, this will be a really interesting talk for our members to enjoy. Come & buy a few plants or just have a coffee.
