Trip to Malvern29th September 2013
It was a pleasure to welcome Mary and Jason on our ‘grand day out’ to the Malvern Autumn Show. I knew our day out would be a good bonding experience but it turned out to be a bit more than I bargained for with an extended visit to Michaelwood services on the M5! At the show, the displays and nurseries that impressed us most turned out to be from the Shepton Mallet area – so it was interesting and made us appreciate even more our locality.
Nurseries we bought from / visited at the show included:
Hardy and Unsual Plants, Kilver Court, Shepton Mallet www.hardyandunusualplants.co.uk
East Pennard Plants www.pennardplants.com
Mendip Bonsai, Shepton Mallet www.mendipbonsai.co.uk
Tor Stone, Glastonbury
The show made me think it would be fun to have our own club ‘ Harvest / Harvest Moon ‘ show next year so I am open for suggestions, Connor – our youngest member – has already requested that we have an “Exotic fruit ” category in the show.
Our thanks to Henk for driving us, to Ann and Emma for the bags of sweets that were passed around the min bus
