A bit like the coming of spring, the EHS is slowly opening up and restarting its activities again.  The Hut has re-opened with new stock, and we’ve been pleased that our members are returning to buy.   The Zoom talks we’ve put on have been popular, with attendance in the high 60s.  There are two more lined up in April and May.  We will probably continue using Zoom for our talks in autumn since the restrictions for using inside venues look likely to preclude the gathering of big groups. We’re happy to announce that some of our members have kindly offered to open their gardens in the coming months.  Each one will have a slightly different way of doing it, but in order to manage the numbers of visitors, members will have to book in beforehand.  We’ll be sending out information by email in advance of openings.  If you know a member who isn’t able to access emails, please let them know about these open garden arrangements. Our other big news is that the schedule for the Show marquee has been put on our website www.emsworthhorticulturalsociety.org.uk.  Shiraz, our webmaster, has displayed it in ‘flippable’ form so it’s very easy to use.  Do have a look!  We are also appealing for volunteers to take part in putting on the Show.  It’s being organised slightly differently this year with the volunteers for the marquee and associated EHS stalls being managed separately from the volunteers for the rest of the Show.  Please use the appropriate form at the end of this newsletter to register what you’d like to do to help. Finally, don’t forget our plant sale on May 9th!  Full details later in the newsletter and on the website. Happy gardening! Lyn Davies and Colin Beale. mailto:emshorticultural@gmail.com.

May Plant Sale at The Hut

on Sunday 9th May - 09:30 to 12:00

It’s time to plant seeds, take cuttings and divide your perennials, if you haven’t already done so, for our annual plant sale outside of the EHS Distribution Hut at the Washington Road Allotments. Please bring you plants to the Hut by 9:30am and make sure you return by 12:00pm to collect any unsold plants and your money.  We take 20% of the total which will go towards the running costs of the EHS Horticultural Marquee at the Emsworth Show.  Please make sure that EACH plant has 2 labels, one with your name and the plant price and the other with just the plant name.  You can also bring garden sundries, but no large items.  We look forward to seeing you all and let’s hope the sun shines. The Hut  Opening Hours 2021 Every Sunday - 10 - 12 noon Apart from August 29th, December and early January.
