2023 Summer Bulletin
The 2023 Summer Bulletin went into the post today and should be arriving with some UK members tomorrow and to most of you this week. Those mailed overseas will take a little longer to arrive.

There are some forms for booking the evening meals and information on getting a discount on tickets for the Malvern Autumn Show to come along to the fuchsia festival enclosed.

The envelope looks a bit different hopefully to avoid, overseas ones being delivered to the Secretary!!

If you do not receive it by the middle of next week please contact the secretary.

Please note there is a mistake in the diary. The next committee meeting is on Saturday 21st October, not the 23rd

Members Fuchsias by Post
A team of us got together at Carol Gubler's nursery yesterday to pack up the BFS members plants. For those of you who ordered them in this way they will be posted out tomorrow (Monday 17th April) First Class. So they should arrive on Tuesday or Wednesday (Royal Mail dependant!!).

This year the rooted cuttings have been posted using large letter clamshell cases and should be able to be posted through any standard letterboxes. Let us know how it has worked for you. NB The labels are marked A, B, C etc and correspond to their positions in the pack. Make sure you have the right label for that cutting before removing and potting up.

If you do not receive them and believe you ordered them in this way please contact John Nicholass or Carol Gubler
