Get Together

03 March 2011 23:36:32

I know that many of us are looking forward to our get-together in Johnstown on Saturday 5th at 1pm. Lets have an absolutely brilliant day!

We will meet in the conservatory, which seats about 26 people and will be reserved for us. It is a separate room opening onto a large deck area, with additional seating to allow people to mingle freely. As we are such a large group, Johnstown have asked us to take lunch in two shifts so as not to completely congest the restaurant

Other reminders :

Park to the left as you enter the car park, to facilitate easy plant exchange.

Bring one gift worth less than euro 10 if you want to take part in the kris kindle. Myrtle will be assigning numbers to packages so you don't necessarily have to wrap it.

Please wear a tag with your site name for easy identification. If you forget, Bruno will have blank labels.

Linda, please don't forget the raffle tickets.

Please note that Johnstown are currently stocking the new Irish range of primulas, including 'Drumliffe' and 'Inisfree'. They are also getting a lot of new stock delivered today and tomorrow so our timing is perfect. Check out their on-line catalogue (you will need to copy and paste the address to your browser)...

Rachel I wonder if they're getting out there new stock in because were arriving :-)

Rachel Rachel 03 March 2011 23:41:31

Who knows. Who cares. But I was told they have perennials for euro 4, trays of veg for euro 4 and hanging basket plants for euro 2. So there's probably something for everybody : )

AitAlainn AitAlainn 04 March 2011 00:11:42

Really looking forward to it!  

I have a stacking tray wormery that I no longer use and if anyone is interested in having it I will root it out of the shed and gladly take it with me.

Thank you Rachel for info and reminder ... Looking forward to meet all friends ..

Hosta Hosta 04 March 2011 00:34:16

thanks for the info Rachel and for all your hard work in organising the meet.  Really looking forward to meeting everyone and it promises to be a great dau

HeadGardener HeadGardener 04 March 2011 00:34:33

AitAlainn would love the tray wormery if your giving it away (assuming I can fit it in the car?)

AitAlainn AitAlainn 04 March 2011 00:56:39

You are more than welcome to it, Bill! Its fairly compact so unless the car is packed with plants you should fit it no bother! Got great use out of it for a few years but haven't used it since I set up my compost heaps and I wouldn't give  them away for the world!! See you on Saturday.

HeadGardener HeadGardener 04 March 2011 10:02:30

Were inclined to forget all your great efforts, so sorry about that Rachel and thank you.

Rachel Rachel 04 March 2011 10:23:00

Yes, Cw12cat, come along if you can. Although there might be a fight over chairs : )

Rachel Rachel 04 March 2011 10:23:26

Rachel having a bad day the clutch in my car has gone.  The man in the garage said he won't have it fixed untill near lunch time but will try his best.  So I won't be able to get there in time for meal but will be there but late.  Thanks for all your organising and see you tomorrow.

unagrant unagrant 04 March 2011 12:27:15

I just thought I have a gift for Kris kindle so Myrtle can save a number for it.

Myrtle Myrtle 04 March 2011 14:01:00

You have to come Una as I have your book and plant for you :)

 Looking forward to it Rachel.

Drumanagh Drumanagh 04 March 2011 14:09:53

Been potting up plants all morning - I'm having a spot of car trouble too but hope to be there on time!

Rachel Rachel 04 March 2011 14:16:49

Una, your efforts to attnd get-togethers are never uneventful but you always make it in the end. Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow : )

I've been making my list, checking it twice too, Alison. I'm sure to forget something : (

BrunoCork BrunoCork 04 March 2011 14:25:57

Guys, I'm coming down with something. :( I woke up with a sore throat and now I have a head ache and feel a bit light headed, but I'm not gonna let it get in the way coming tomorrow. I'll wear lots of layers. :)

Rachel Rachel 04 March 2011 14:29:49

Sounds like contagious .ie-ritis! But seriously, I hope you shake it off.

unagrant unagrant 04 March 2011 15:06:59

Rachel I was only thinking that this morning.  I think next time I'll say nothing about coming and I won't jinx myself.  Myrtle thank you so much for remembering.  Alison sorry to hear about your car trouble too.  My car just knew I wanted to spend money on plants and thought it would get in there first.

fran m fran m 04 March 2011 15:19:38

Bruno, nothing will stop you, me thinks ;-))

Dick Dick 04 March 2011 22:04:57

Rachel, i hope to meet the group at Johnstown. What is Kris kindle?

HeadGardener HeadGardener 04 March 2011 23:47:51

Bruno as long as it is'nt contagious :-) want to ask you about some seeds I got via the last meet I can't figure out what they are?
