Each show has over 30 classes for members to enter. There is also a small section for non-members and every assistance is given to those, whose first show it is.

As well as the display of fuchsias or pelargoniums, there are the usual ‘attractions’ of a local show: plant stall, tombola and homemade cake to enjoy over a cup of tea. Advice on growing is available and one person, who is often overlooked is the judge, who is usually very happy to share his knowledge.

As part of a day out Monkton Elm Garden Centre is close by. Almost opposite our show venue is Silvers Pantry, a small scale “eatery” at Prockter’s Farm. Within walking distance of our hall is the Merry Monk pub. For culture, the grade I listed Hestercombe Gardens are three miles away by car.
