RHS Wisley Plant Society Show 2018

Date : Sat 16th June - Sun 17th June

The BHHS joined 20 other RHS Plant Societies at Wisley once again on Saturday 16th & Sunday 17th June for the annual Plant Society Show. It was a great opportunity for us to raise our profile with the public, offer some advice on cultivating hostas and hemerocallis and raise funds by selling plants. Led by our President Jonathan Hogarth & Treasurer Bob Prigmore, who manned the plant sales area, several committee members helped out over the course of the weekend. We gave demonstrations on how to propagate hostas using aquaponics and how to split hostas, both of which were popular with the visitors.

As in 2016, the Society was present at the 2017 Plant Society Show at RHS Wisley. The Show was very popular with the gardening public and was attended by a large number of Plant Societies. The BHHS was represented by the Chairman, Jonathan Hogarth and Treasurer/Librarian, Bob Prigmore with assistance from the Secretary, Marjorie Sturman and her husband, Tony. Together they dealt with enquiries from visitors who were keen to learn more about hostas and hemerocallis and acted as vendors, selling plants.
