Today....

Next I would like to invite you to 2012’s plant swap; again it will be held in my garden. When you come to the plant swap you will be able to bring a plant (or seeds) and swap with each or trade it for one of the items in the shop. Mentioning the shop there will be a range of plants for you to purchase in order to grow on later this year. If you have any special requests for plants please mention them in the form and I will do my best.

The Swap – Saturday 14th April 2012

The Show – Saturday 18th August 2012

I know that it’s rather brief but I think that’s about it for now then. I look forward to seeing you later on this year and wish you all a successful growing season…

Elmwood Gardening Show 2011 – Introduction

This is a little introduction for all yous who do not know about my show.

I set up my show back in 2009, for some reason I just thought that it was a good idea at the time and that it would be a great incentive to get family and friends to grow your own and add a little competitive edge to it. The show is held in my back garden and it is a great day for every one involved. And here I am 3 years later with my little show, who knows in another 3 years we may be as big as chelsea!!!

These are the categories in my show for 2011 :-

Tomatoes

Vegetables

Fruit

Flowers

Pots and Planters

You may be wondering why there is a category specially for tomatoes. This is because so many people entered them I just decided to create their own category. It is so competitive! I won 2nd prize for my little display last year, which I was quite surprised by as so many others were great. By the way I don’t judge if you are thinking that I am being bias, no my great nana judges it as they don’t really have the room however I may have persuaded her this year so…

Anyway if you are actually coming then take note of this, it has been suggested to have a cookery element of the show, so this will be introduced. Also if you requested a starter pack and have not collected your free plant, then you have until the end of may to collect it otherwise I’ll swap it at the plant swap at gardeners world, you have been told!!
Also for those who are coming, you can easily keep in contact using the comment feature at the bottom of each post!

This was a basic intro to the show for the people who are coming and the May update for the show will be coming soon….
