Notice of cancellation of Russborough Plant Sale
Because of continuing crowd restrictions and the deferred lifting of Phase 4 of Covid-19 controls, Russborough estate have sadly decided to cancel the Plant Sale planned for 23 August in Russborough.  The RHSI fully understands and supports the decision made by the estate’s management team.
A sincere thank you to the many members who volunteered their time and assistance to the RHSI membership stand at the Plant Sale. While this event cannot take place, there will be other opportunities for members to actively engage with the Society.

We hope you are enjoying our newsletter and that we have offered some worthwhile reading while we all had so many restricted opportunities to enjoy our usual activities. Hopefully we can finally begin to resume normal activities this month.

We are delighted that the gardens that make up the RHSI Partner Garden Scheme are opening up gradually across the country with the usual safety guidelines.  We encourage all members to avail of this great opportunity to visit these amazing gardens now that travel restrictions have been lifted.  Before you set out on your visit, please check on to ensure that the gardens are open.

Russborough Plant Sale:
Russborough Estate is organising a Plant Sale on Sunday 23rd August, supported by the Irish Specialist Nurseries Association (ISNA).   Sadly, the RHSI very successful Summer Show held last year was cancelled for this year.   The RHSI has a long association with Russborough and we will have an Information stand at the event promoting RHSI membership.  We would appreciate volunteers to help on the day and we will be in contact with further details.  In the meantime, please save the date.
