Our annual plant sale this year was a huge success due mainly to the quality and quantity of the plants kindly donated by our members. So a big “thank you” to all those who brought plants to be sold on the day.
We used the same venue as in previous years - the delightful garden at Budds House in Dulverton but changed the time to the morning which seemed to work well and attracted a large number of buying public many of them from outside the area.
Refreshments and light lunches were available and customers were able to take advantage of the good weather and sit outside to eat and enjoy the surroundings.
