Spring 2021 meeting (Zoom)

On Sunday 28th March 2021 we have arranged a virtual meeting at 2pm using the Zoom online video-conferencing software. This should allow anyone with a computer, laptop, tablet or smart-phone to participate. An Internet connection will be required (which you presumably have if you are reading this!) and preferably also a microphone and video-camera (often combined and sometimes called a webcam) if you wish to say something. These are built into smartphones, most tablets and many laptops, and can be plugged into desktop computers.

Jon Evans will show the second part of his talk on “Plants seen at AGS shows” for our Zoom meeting at 2pm. This will be a chance for all those members who can’t normally travel to our meetings in person to join in. Jon gave us the first part of his talk at our last physical meeting on 6 October 2019 in Winchester. We will email details of the link to join the talk nearer the time.

Autumn 2021 meeting

For the time being, face-to-face meetings have been suspended. Recent meetings have been at our usual meeting place, Badger Farm Community Centre, Winchester, and the following information is given in the hope that we will be able to resume meeting in autumn 2021, but a decision on this cannot be taken yet.

All who are interested in growing these plants will be welcome. Doors open at 10:00 a.m. and the meeting will finish at approximately 2:30 p.m. There is an entry fee of £3.00, but parking is free. There will as usual be a plant display table, plant sales (a good reason to arrive soon after 10:00!), and tea and coffee with biscuits. There will also be a few books for sale. You are encouraged to bring along any plants you wish to display or sell, or digital photos to share with the audience. Bring your own lunch.

The timetable we plan is as follows:

10am Doors open for Plant Sales. Tea/coffee available
11am – 12.00 Talk by invited speaker
12.00 - 1 pm Lunch
1pm - 2pm Talk by member
2pm – 2.30pm Winding up

More details of our meetings are given on the meetings page.
