We had a wonderful annual spring plant fair in the beautiful grounds of our Chairman’s country house…with many specialist plant suppliers braving the weather.

We’ve adored a visit to the first home of Vita Sackville-West & Harold Nicolson at Long Barns

Just a few days ago, Julie Simpson, Managing Director of the Wealden Times, drew our Grand Summer Raffle.  We’ve had the pleasure of telling people they had won wonderful stays at places Gravetye Manor, in Sussex, the Seckford Hall Hotel in Suffolk, and the Gliffaes Country House Hotel in Wales.  One lucky winner has won an afternoon with Helen Yemm, the acclaimed gardening writer, sorting out the winner’s own ‘thorny problems’, and another has won £150 Ever Edge vouchers.  Thank you to everyone who supported our raffle.
