Newsletter 132 - October 2020

Dear Members,

This is an extra Newsletter just to keep us all in touch. I hope you are well and thriving. It seems to be Autumn already – where did Summer go? After a perfectly wonderful Spring we have had a washout August with heavy downpours and flooding in many areas caused by storms Ellen and Frances. So much for summer and, as it now also officially over, we can start looking ahead to the pre-winter clearing back of our plants and tidying up our gardens and the never ending sweeping up of leaves which occupies so much time.

As you know, our planned autumn programme has been cancelled due to Covid-19, because we are unable to access the Loan Hall for our meetings. It is with great regret that we have now also taken the decision to cancel our Plant Sale which was scheduled for 3rd October in Anne Siller’s driveway. We checked the Scottish government rules for public gatherings and at this stage those such as the Plant Sale are prohibited and there has been a tightening of the rules for all public gatherings. However, the good news is that we will still be selling the bulbs, which we have ordered from Parker’s as usual. This will now be done online, and we have enclosed a separate page with the list of bulbs available, and instructions for purchases.
