Meavy Oak Fair
Saturday 20th June 2015
Three Society members (David Winter, Janet Jones and Kay Moore) manned the plant stall at the Meavy Oak Fair, again this year. We were once again given plants to sell by kind donation of Peter Argles from Champernowne Nursery and several members of the Meavy Garden Society also gave plants for the stall. Sales were good, with several members of the public remarking that they had bought plants from the stall on previous years and had been really pleased with the quality of them.
The Garden Society also took the opportunity to launch the Meavy Garden Society Calendar for 2016. These were sold for £5.50 each with 50p per calendar donated to the Meavy Oak Fair.
Members will have the opportunity to purchase their calendar at the next meeting on Monday 20th July for just £5.00 each.

A Very Beautiful Garden
Thursday 5th May 2015
A very enjoyable social evening was held on Thursday 5th May. Our host had a very beautiful garden which was full of colour and some unusual plants, one of which was a “Japanese Star Anise” (Illicium Anisatum) - see photo right. A trail had been set out for members to explore the garden and the weather was kind after all the recent rain, we had a dry evening. Members enjoyed nibbles,drinks and good conversation.
