Members are encouraged to bring plants or bulbs for the display and for the plant sale. For those who have not been to this event before, there is always a good display of  snowdrops, crocus, iris, cyclamen and other bulbous plants. It is stressed that this is not  competitive show but an opportunity to share  the plants you love with other  members.
We have two excellent speakers lined up for the event. Ian Young will speak about sixteen years  of the  Bulb Log and Ian Christie  will present on ‘Spring Delights’.


 16th April – Plant  Photography Workshop at Glenarn Garden, Helensburgh, by Liz Cole.
For those with an interest in in plant and garden photography, Liz Cole will be running an introductory workshop on the 16th April at Glenarn Garden, Helensburgh(thanks to  the owners  Michael and Sue Thornley). Liz is a photographer specialising in flowers, plants and gardens and her work has  been used in  magazines, books, newspapers and for plant labels and calendars. The workshop should last all day but timings are to be confirmed. Costs per participant will depend on numbers but it anticipated that it will be no more than £20 each.  To assist with planning, those who are interests should email Liz so she can gauge the level of interest. Liz’ website is at www.lizcole.co.uk   for anyone wanting to see some of her work.

GARDENING SCOTLAND 2019
Show Dates: Friday 31st May to Sunday 2nd June

The Club will have a stand and display at Gardening Scotland 2019, at the Ingliston Showground in Edinburgh. We plan to have a similar educational exhibit to that in 2018, with a display of plants and troughs, although other ideas are welcome.
As usual we need Club members to help.

Daily Set-up: Monday 27th to Thursday 30th May

First, Set-up. We would appreciate help with assembling the stand and setting out the plants, from Monday 27th till Thursday 30th May. Setting up involves building the stand, carrying plants and materials, arranging the plants, writing labels, as well as setting out the seeds and information tables. It is essential that the stand is tidied up by removing dead leaves and flowers and other tasks so as to bring it up to the highest standard.

Second, Show Days. We need volunteers to man the stand on the three show days (Friday to Sunday). This involves engaging with the public, handing out leaflets, talking about the Club, local groups and the benefits of membership. There will be questions about the plants, usually growing conditions or where they can be bought. All the seed packets are labelled. You don't need to know everything because other members are there to help you.
There is a prearranged rota and volunteers choose their own time slots. We would welcome some new members helping this year. It is good fun and an excellent opportunity to meet fellow Club members at Scotland's top flower show.
 
If you would like to help please contact Richard or Stan:
Stan da Prato standaprato@talktalk.net will be in charge of the stand
Richard Green treasurer@srgc.net is organising the rota
Sandy Leven will be joint stand manager sandy.leven@btinternet.com
