As you can see the Rose  and Young peoples classes were not awarded this year so why not resolve to adjust this by growing more Roses and encouraging Children and Grandchildren to take part. Spend the coming dark evenings researching the growing and care of Roses [and Children!] in order to become a Cup Winner. Books and  specialist magazines on most Fruit, Flowers and Bulbs  [ not Children] are available at the Store to borrow or purchase for a donation.




The Purbrook Horticultural Society Annual Open Summer Show takes place at Crookhorn College of Technology, Stakes Hill Road, Waterlooville.
