The show’s over

Well, not the whole show, but certainly the show season for this year. Last weekend, on Saturday 14th August, we attended the Ellingham Show near Ringwood as our final show of 2010. This is a major agricultural event, not quite on the scale of the New Forest Show but not far off it, and despite the rather dull weather, the crowds turned out in their thousands, and we enjoyed a pretty good day for this time of year.

May and June were the really busy months event-wise, and we were out and about from up in Andover to down in deepest Dorset. The weather was lovely at some and awful at others, but the wetter days didn’t put off the keen gardeners, and we were very pleased with the way things went. It’s always nice to have only a handful of plants to put back in the van at the end of the day!

Thanks to everyone who came to buy plants from us at the shows and fairs, and we look forward to seeing you again next year, if not before!
