Perennial favourites

Breckland Flower and Garden Club
Members were welcomed to the August meeting to be entertained by Guy Barker talking about his 'passion for perennials' - a very knowledgeable young man who brought along some of his favourite plants for autumn.
The competition for a continental parallel produced a very colourful table. Janet Skidmore won the New Hands class and Marion Beesley won the Old Hands class as well as the Dorothy Jeffries Trophy for the most fun arrangement which included a pair of cheeky scarecrows.
Congratulations go to Christine Hewson and Joy Tunmore for winning the Club Class at the Royal Norfolk Show and to Joy for winning the Best in Show for her petite flower arrangement.
The outing to Hyde Hall and Braintree shopping outlet was much enjoyed and most people came home with a purchase or two.
Next meeting will be Thursday 10 September at 2pm in Old Buckenham Village Hall when J Baker will demonstrate 'Mad about Plant' and the competition will be for a Pot-et-Fleur. The Joan Fisher Trophy to be awarded for the best use of colour.
Visitors are always welcome, further details can be obtained from the chairman Pat on 01953 457305 or the secretary Sally on 01953 788712.
