Regretfully, the RHSI would like to confirm to members that all tours for 2020 are cancelled. A tour schedule for 2021 will be circulated at a later date. Refunds will be made for all bookings.
The RHSI and the Alpine Garden Society are happy to be co-authors of this week’s newsletter.
From Monday 18 May most nurseries, garden centers and farmers’ markets in the Republic of Ireland will reopen to the public.
As some members of both the RHSI and the AGS will continue to use on-line suppliers, this week’s email newsletter includes a list of garden centers, nurseries and flower growers offering online and mail-order sales. If your favorite nursery is not on this list, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. Previous newsletters in this series have listed many of the excellent nurseries and growers serving Irish gardeners, north and south. All need your support now.
It is always good to pass on news of an Irish horticultural success and we are delighted to hear that Christopher White recently received his Harry Howarth Gold Medal for Dahlia ‘Aggie White’ being the best performing cultivar in the 2019 Leeds trials. The dahlia was named for Christopher’s mother. Congratulations to Christopher and greetings to Mrs White.
It can’t be quite the same but it is good to know that the 2020 RHS Chelsea Flower Show is going virtual. It will be online from 18 to 23 May. Go to rhs.org.uk/Chelsea to experience the Show from your sofa.
