BONSAI IN THE PARK
Sunday 9 September 2018

We are pleased to be holding our exhibition once again at the lovely Lupton House, a listed building in parkland, between Paignton and Brixham in South Devon. See link on right or http://discoverlupton.com.  Make a note of the date and location in your diaries.  As details evolve of the traders and exhibitors, we shall be posting here.   There are many places to stay in the area and early September is a lovely time of the year for a weekend break! Happy to say the Kingskerswell bypass is now working very well and considerably shortens the journey to Torbay.

Look forward to seeing you!

MEMORIAL: IDA DONNELLY AWARD

Ida was a long standing member having joined us back in 1990s and sadly passed away last year in her 90s. She was a quiet but happy member who was much liked. Her daughter kindly allowed us to sell her remaining pots and plants and generously donated the money to create an award in Ida’s name.   A lovely small bronze image of a Woodcock rising in flight was chosen and this year the Award was given for the accent or kusamono plant voted best by the members in June.  The winner was Chris S with her planting of Rhodohypoxis ‘Bridal Bouquet’. The second place was Delyse with her single rhodohypoxis in a unique Erin pot and third was Lynda with her wee grasses.
