Anyone for Apples?

More apples  …

The apples on my apple tree ripen a bit later than others and I now have plenty. They are better as cookers but not bad as an eating apple either. I have put a box at the bottom of the drive. Please help yourself. Bring your own bags.

Apple Pressing – Thank You!

Thanks so much to everyone who supported Sunday’s apple pressing. To Parwich British Legion for hosting, to all those who brought along their apples, to the enthusiastic mashers and pressers, and last, but not least, to John H for supplying the equipment and overseeing what was a great village community event.

Free Plants

On the gravel at the entrance to Church Farm in Creamery Lane is a number of plants, herbaceous plants, wild flowers and shrubs, in need of a home. Please help yourself.

Everything must go, especially as my goddaughter returns to get her car on Sunday and the plants are currently blocking it in. Also there are lots of plastic plant pots in the large builders merchant back if they are any use to anyone.

Knock on the door if you want to know what the plants are.

PDHS On The Road

Last week, members and guests enjoyed a day out at RHS Bridgewater. John Lord’s photos capture some of the scenes, including TV’s Carol Klein caught on camera!

To become a member of Parwich and District Horticultural Society and enjoy trips at discounted prices contact Jill Love, Jenny Letten or Nina Martin.

Whilst we admire the beauty of the gardens on display during Open Gardens we don’t perhaps fully appreciate the effort and dedication that goes into the quest for perfection. We are indebted to David G who managed to catch this behind the scenes shot of one of our more athletic gardeners in his effort to get everything just in the correct position.

Parwich Please Take a Bow

Yesterday’s Open Gardens was a triumph. Huge thanks to the hard working team behind the event and to the whole village both for supporting it in different ways and for welcoming so many visitors, who frequently said how lucky we are to live in such a wonderful place. Early estimates suggest several thousand pounds were raised which is a fantastic achievement and John Lord’s amazing photos are a lasting memory of a great day.

Thank you from PDHS

Plants Please!

PDHS would love your spare plants to sell at Open Gardens on 26th June. Please drop them off at the Memorial Hall either Saturday evening or Sunday morning. It is a great help if they are labelled and of course they should be grown in peat-free compost.

Meanwhile plants can still be bought outside Rookery House.

Many thanks

Sue and Jill
