STRICTLY BLOOMS AGAIN! Saturday 27th April 2013
‘Strictly come Gardening’ Haywards Heath's Gardening show, is back, bigger and blooming
on Saturday, 27th April 2013, providing lots of ideas for your garden!
The celebrity expert panel returns, chaired by Jean Griffin, BBC Radio Sussex and
Surrey's gardening guru. Last years’ exhibitors, plus many more, are planning to
attend so we’ll again have the great Sussex gardens, plant specialists, nurseries,
schools and colleges. Local horticultural and gardening clubs will be strongly represented
and new features are planned, including flower arranging teach-ins from de Novo Flowers,
a Gardening Treasure Hunt, where clues will be hidden in the shops in the Orchards
and a ‘fun’ quiz, “Know your Plants”. There’ll also be lots of music and dance from
local schools during the afternoon to make this a really fun community event!
Virtually every school in and around Haywards Heath is taking part in the Strictly
Schools Challenge. Younger children are being asked to paint a picture of their favourite
tree while Key Stage 2 children will be creating their “Edible Metre”, a mini kitchen
garden. Older students are being challenged to design a sustainable gardening feature
– for example, something optimising the use of water. Meanwhile regulars at Age Concern’s
Redwood Centre in Haywards Heath will be looking forward to creating brilliant floral
displays in wheelbarrows, sponsored by the Orchards Shopping Centre.
Any organisation, residents’ association, horticultural or gardening club who would
like to become involved should contact Ruth on 01444 453399, firstname.lastname@example.org. ENDS
