February Meeting

This month’s speaker was Nick Smith, Show Director from the North of England Horticultural Society, who gave us a very amusing talk on the planning and staging of the Harrogate Flower Shows.

We have all seen the colourful displays from over 100 nurseries, enjoyed the live entertainment and marvelled at the stunning displays of floral art, but it was very informative to hear how the show has developed over the years and to see how Nick and the team are continuing to strive to produce innovative shows each year despite the occasional setback.


January Meeting

This month’s speakers were Barbara & Peter Murphy who entertained us with a talk on ‘A Year in the Life of Rodley Nature Reserve’. It was interesting to see how the site has evolved and Barbara’s photographs are superb.  Following on from their visit we have been advised that Rodley has been chosen as one of the five finalists in the 2018 BBC Countryfile Magazine’s Best Nature Reserve. “Not bad for a bunch of retired individuals” said Peter. If you would like to vote for them visit their website for details.



New Annual Show

At the 2017 AGM in November the decision was made to combine the Spring and Autumn Flower Shows into an Annual Flower & Produce Show to be held in the Autumn.

The Show Committee is now working on the new show which promises to be even bigger and better than before.

Who are we

We are a group of enthusiastic gardeners who meet monthly from September to May, hold an Annual Show each September and organise several garden visits in and around Yorkshire every summer.
