The meeting started with club news and notices followed by our Chrysanthemum, Pot Plant and Apple show, held at the Moorlands Club, Curzon Street, Long Eaton. NG10 4FL. This show is for members only and was very well attended. The standard of the Chrysanthemums exhibited was very high, which made it a difficult task for the judge, Mr Tony Lee, to decide. But the winners are as follows:-
A E Dodd Cup – Mick Henson – Best exhibit for 3 Incurved Blooms.
H Newbold Trophy – Derek Weedon – Best exhibit for 3 Reflexed Blooms.
Blackie Challenge Trophy – Mick Henson – Best exhibit for 3 intermediate Blooms.
The speaker for the evening was one of our members, Mrs Julia Powell, with a talk on “Gardens of the World” and accompanied with some fabulous slides. Many thanks Julia.
The next meeting is on Tuesday 21st November. The speaker for the evening will be Mr Don Witton with a talk on “Hardy Planters with Winter Survival Kit”. 19th December is our Xmas Party Night. This is for MEMBERS ONLY WITH TICKET. 16TH January we have a talk by Mr David Thornton on Fertilizers for Fruit, Flowers and Veg.
