The results from entries into all of the Online competitions since last year’s lockdown have now been analysed and the overall winners for some of our trophies determined. Unfortunately not all trophies can be awarded as the online competitions meant it was not possible to cover all of the classes and trophies we would have in the normal Annual Show.

ONLINE COMPETITION The prize winners for the March Daffodil and Hellebore competitions have now been announced. The April competition details are now on the ONLINE COMPETITION page.

Expect the inevitable April showers this month but with sunny days too, when you can turn your attention to the lawn. It’s an exciting month, with indoor-sown seeds well into growth, and it’s also time to start sowing outdoors. Just watch out for frosts…. Both the Royal Horticultural Society and BBC Gardeners World website give reminders of jobs that need doing this month.

We are an active society promoting a range of different activities for everyone interested in gardening. We normally host monthly talks provided by gardening experts. Details of talks for 2021 are under the Programme page. Details of any visits arranged will be found under Society Trips .

So if you enjoy gardening or simply interested in it- It’s fun and inexpensive to join us. Membership details are on the Membership page along with details of member discounts available at local retailers/nurseries. A map showing how to find us at Beckminster Church Hall and meeting times are shown on the Find us pages.

The Gallery and Links page also has some tips for gardening and links to the Plant Hunters Fair and Shropshire Historic Churches open gardens website for gardeners looking for plants at reasonable prices and with expert advice available.
