19 May - Bag a bargain at the Plant Sale

Our annual plant sale will be held in the Village Hall. Each year we review the supply of plants we order based on your demand and suggestions made at the previous sale. As always, we depend greatly on our members adding to our order of annuals by donating plants. As well as herbaceous cuttings, if you are willing to grow some plants prior to the sale, some suggestions which would be especially appreciated are any herbs, and annuals such as aster, sweet pea, mimulus, pansy and viola. ​ On Saturday 19th May in Gifford Village Hall, 10am sharp as it sells out quickly!
