We’re pleased to be holding face to face events again.   During recent months members Hazel and Martin Stewart, Ann Moss and Sarah Sanderson generously opened their gardens for members to visit, and socialise.  Our biggest event was the Show of course – more about that later.  A guided walk at West Dean Gardens was the highlight of early September.  The head gardener, Tom Brown, showed us round the areas which he is renovating and replanting.  During lockdown when Tom didn’t have the staff to maintain it, the area beyond the college went wild.   He aims to make it no less attractive but easier to maintain. Autumn talks will be via Zoom.  In October highly regarded gardening journalist Adam Pascoe will speak to us, and in November Hoo House Nursery owner Julie Ritchie.  More details can be found in this newsletter and on the EHS website.  We hope to have a social event in December, depending on the Covid situation. We were pleased to co-opt Annette Wood to the EHS committee in August.  She’s begun by organising a seed swap at Sarah’s open garden.  If you weren’t able to take part, there are still a few seed packets to be found at the Hut.   The EHS is supporting the RHS’s campaign for sustainable gardening by offering peat-free and organic products for sale at the Hut.
