    The Kew Horticultural Society’ Summer Show is taking place this year on |Saturday 25 August in The St Anne’s Church Hall, Kew Green.

    They are naturally keen to encourage everyone not just to visit the Show but also to join in the fun and try their hand at exhibiting.

    This is a show for everyone, as the classes  listed in the entry form demonstrate.  And so we hope there is an opportunity here for you to exhibit the best things you have grown, whether  in your garden or a pot plant on a windowsill.

    And of course there will be a tea tent and a plant stall too!
