Members table show 2018

A beautiful display of the members’ hard work

The last meeting of the Society was the members Table show, one of the big events of the year. Surprisingly in spite of the dry weather there were many entries of first rate flowers and vegetables, from sweet peas, roses and fuchsias plus wonderful vases of flowers. There was also a good showing of vegetables and fruit, a photography class of a seaside pier and lastly a lovely mouthwatering collection of Victoria sponges.

Whilst the show was being judged we had a talk by Ken Abel, well known for his prize winning pelargoniums. He went through the different types of pelargonium and pointed out the difference between a pelargonium and a geranium. Many of the pelargoniums are capable of being trained as fans, as standards or bonzoi. His talk was accompanied by slides of his wonderful plants. He then showed the members how he takes cuttings and how successful they are using his method, and then the stopping process to make a bushy prizewinning plant, type of compost and the feed he uses.

Following his talk the prizewinners were announced and presented with their trophy’s by the judge. These can be kept for one year. Members were reminded of the big Show open to the public on August 18th and 19th, encouraged to put in as many entries as possible, and bake some cakes for the visitors.
