It had been a long cold winter and many of our seedlings were too small to bring to the sale, but our supporters brought what they had. It helped that it was such a lovely evening on the 17th and we had a lot of keen growers arriving early to buy from us. There were also a number of disappointed commuters who arrived too late to get what they really wanted, but nevertheless they supported us and bought what remained.
Nearly everything was snapped up. Our tomato and courgette plants were gone within minutes. The photos below were taken about 15 minutes after we started. You will note the empty table were our vegetables were…….. We had flowers and herbs as well and nearly all of those went too. We may be selling some of the surplus seedlings that are now large enough to sell, and possibly some other plants, at our gardening parties and other events during the summer.
Thank you everyone who came and bought our plants and made the sale such a success.
This is one of our major fundraising activities, and this year we made £386.96.
This included donations from our collecting tin and sale of books.
