The Garden Society has an impressive new website, please use the link above and explore the beginnings of an excellent source of information and news, along with some amazing photographs and videos.
Take a look at this years Charlbury Open Gardens, which have become virtual, and are one of the first events to be captured on the website with films and photographs of some very splendid local gardens.
Many thanks to Helen (website creator), Georgia (designer) and Harriet (on-going maintenance) for making this a reality.
Time is passing. Sunflowers are getting tall and vegetables are getting big, so don’t forget to get out your phone or camera and record the result for the Virtual Show.
Here’s how it works:
There are now 6 categories:
1. The tallest sunflower
2. The largest vegetable
3. The longest vegetable
4. The funniest/oddest shaped vegetable
5. A perfect flower
6. The tallest hollyhock
Take a full resolution photograph and send it as an email attachment to email@example.com.
The deadline is September 12th, the scheduled date of the Annual Show. This is open to all ages. Don’t forget to add any measuring devices in the photo, or state the measurements taken, plus your own name and location in the email. While you may have to wait some more for the vegetables, there are flowers now that are begging to have their picture taken.
There will be no prizes, but we’ll post the photos so everyone can enjoy the results.
