The Nerine and Amaryllid Society is taking place in the Virtual Flower Show organised by Dibleys Nursery on April 17th and 18th. Details can be found on http://VirtualFlowerShow.uk This isn't something we have ever done before! Please take a few minutes to visit our virtual stand over the weekend!
The dates for the Malvern Autumn Show 2021 are confirmed as September 24 th, 25th and 26th ; we had intended to mount a Society display however normally the Show is two days not three. Three days will make mounting the display and manning the stand very difficult. The Three Counties Showground are still not able to give details of how the Show will be run. We have heard that there may not be marquees this year. This makes it possible that we will not be able participate this year.
