Harvest Forum 2017

Harvest Forum
 And the winners are ... Peter, Ann, Sue G and Margaret

After the effort of working out the cryptic clues to the now traditional Harvest quiz, we were glad to sample the variety of dishes provided by members.

If you want to try out these dishes, some can be found on our recipes page.
Display Table
Sheila’s Stapelia asterias was purchased as a small, single stem in Ikea about 20 years ago.  Here it is in flower, the third time it has flowered 
 On the usual route of her dog walk in The Hollies, Jenny picked up the branches and seeds of the deciduous Sequoia tree which had been blown off by the wind
Kate’s container included Parthenocissus henryana, Arum Marmoratum, Salvia, Dahlias, Euonymus alatus, Callicarpa, Persicaria campanulata, the fragrant climbing rose Blush Noisette, Saxifrage Wadas form and Fuchsia Hawkshead
 Gill’s seasonal display
If you look carefully, one of Trevor’s Dahlia Striped Ambition has half the flower a darker shade than the other
Beware of Ann’s charming Halloween display – very poisonous!


 Judith’s display
 James had to transport his exhibit on the roof rack of his car!  To give some idea of scale, the flower of his phormium, which he cut down about 2 ft from the ground, towers above James who is about 6 ft

James also brought this echiveria cutting which he acquired from a talk on succulents at a local nursery

Notice Board
In the new year, Rose intends to step down from her role as a terrific membership secretary.  Paxton is seeking another volunteer and Rose has offered to assist initially.
