The Society will be at Builth Wells, Gardeners' World Live and Tatton in 2013, though with smaller displays than usual. Sadly, we will not be at Malvern, as nobody is able to take on the organising and setting up of this display. A great shame after 27 years of continuous attendance. We will also be in all the RHS gardens, except Rosemoor, for their autumn w/e festival in October.
UK membership costs just £12 or £15 for two people at the same address.Those joining at the shows do not need to renew their subscription until October of the following year.
Members of the Executive Committee and others will arrange stands at Builth Wells, Gardeners World Live and Tatton in 2013.

Margaret Mason will be at the British Red Cross Great Spring Gardening Event on Wednesday April 24th at Whitfield Castle, Hereford, promoting the CGS and selling her plants.
