Once again the Group was represented in the Continuous Learning section at the Chelsea Flower Show.

We were indeed fortunate to be accepted as there were 34 applications for the 16 spaces available.

Last year for the first time the section had a unifying theme, Gardening with Climate Change to which the Group responded with an exhibit entitled Selecting Roses for Climate Change .

The Group was awarded a Bronze Medal for its display and at the regular feedback session with the Chairmen of Judges it transpired that we had been very close to Silver.

There was huge public interest in our stand and despite printing a very large number of free handouts explaining the details of the exhibit, these were exhausted before the end of the show and ever since we have been endeavouring to supply disappointed visitors from a fresh printing. These details are also reproduced on this link .

We are deeply indebted to Peter Beales Roses and Robert Mattock Roses for supplying roses of such high quality for our display.
