Saturday 17th February - From 10.30pm til 1.30pm. Now something different for a change. We would like to welcome Christine Bartlett from the South East Orchid society, who will be giving an illustrated talk on the Care and Cultivation of popular Orchids, she will be demonstrating how to re-pot a plant and conduct a workshop and problem session. Members can bring along any problem plants for Christine to give advice on, but NO live pests. Thank you. As usual a raffle, teas coffee and cakes will be available, also a plant sale of Auriculas for members to enjoy.


Saturday 31st March - From 10.30 until 13.30 members are invited to come along to discuss getting the best from their plants and how to dress for showing, feed or not too feed that is the question? Some of our more experienced members will be on hand to show and help novices. Plus the usual plant sale, Raffle, Teas and Cake will be available.


Sunday 29th April is Show day. The show will be a little different this year, at our last meeting it was decided to have “Members Only” a less formal gathering of people with their plants,members will be able to compete against each other and may be awarded a perpetual Society Trophy to keep for a year and also able to view a Theatre display of plants to add interest.Plants will need to be in place for judging by 12 noon, so try not to be late. Ploughman’s lunches, teas, coffee, cake along with the usual plant sale will all be available to enjoy at knockdown prices.


Monday 7th May. The Theatre display at the Walled Nursery in Hawkhurst will have to be CANCELLED for this year due to the bad weather drastically slowing down the completion of the new green house where we were going to be housed. Emma and Monty send their apologies for the disruption & hope we can re-arrange for next year..
