2021 BFS Show Schedules
The 2021 Show schedules have been uploaded to the members section.
The Harrogate schedule has not yet been finalised by the North of England Horticultural Society and they print the schedules.
Therefore I have added the 2020 schedule as the classes are the same and will upload the final one as soon as I have it.

For those of you who requested show schedules with your renewal Carol will post them out except for the Harrogate one. These will follow later

Please remember all shows may be subject to cancellation or limitations due to any Pandemic restrictions. Please keep an eye on the Website/Facebook

Members Plant Distribution
To all BFS members who are part of the plant distribution scheme.

For those of you who opted for collection from a nominated nursery, please call the nursery and arrange to collect this month (April). If you have forgotten which nursery you nominated, please contact either myself or Carol Gubler.

The postal distribution has been delayed a bit because of the very cold weather and they will be sent out w/c Monday 19th April

UPDATE The mail order plants were posted today (Monday 19th) first class so should be delivered in the next couple of days. With the easing of travel restrictions in Wales it is now possible to collect from Roualeyn, but please call them before you go.
