Mike King's open day (open weekend)Saturday 7th of Ju...

02 Mar 2014

Posted by Mike King in Open Days & Events
Hi Everyone,
Since the plants are already in growth and spring around the corner, I would like to invite you to my open day on Saturday 7th of June.
Officially, it starts at 12 noon, but because people are travelling from quite long distances, people can come earlier. Just be prepared to help out with setting up gazebos etc!
On the Friday, it is planned to do a trip to Chester zoo and on the Sunday/ Saturday night, Ian Salter and Dianne will be opening up their collection too so it will be a whole weekend extravaganza!
Here, the collection is laid out a bit differently with all the flavas and leucos set out in clone number order. The contrast of colours should be quite interesting!
As usual, please feel free to bring some plants to sell or swap, but please remember the host when buying plants! There will be a lot of plants on offer and if you are early enough will find some rare Sarracenia divisions that will be ready and did not make it on my sales list.
Food, drinks and light refreshments will be provided throughout the day, but so we can get the right amount of food in, please let me know if you would like to come.
Also, as fuel is expensive, please consider giving one another lifts.

I hope to see many of you here!

So, I'm lead to believe that the AGM is no longer at Wisley on the 29th March...

Do you think it will be long before the an announcement will be made giving details of a new date & venue or confirming the original details?

I work a large proportion of my weekends (45%) so if the new date is on a working day I have to arrange to get leave with plenty of notice otherwise other people get in there first forcing me to miss out. I just so happen to be off on the 29th so that was a good day for me.

As much advanced notice as possible would be very gratefully received.

And while on the subject of open days, does anyone have details of the Kew open day, please?
