There will also be a members' plant stall and the Pershore College Plant Centre will be open, as well as hundreds of discounted new books and second-hand books on sale in the AGS Centre. There promises to be plenty on offer to tempt our members and the public! A day not to be missed.
We can add Edrom Nurseries to those who will be selling plants at this Saturday's show.
The aster specialists, Old Court Nurseries, will also be at the Pershore Show.

Thank you to everyone who made the Pershore Show such a success on Saturday, particularly the exhibitors, the nurseries, the judges, the large number of non-exhibiting AGS members who came along, and the almost 200 members of the public who attended. Also thank you to those who helped the small team from Pershore who organised the show with tasks on the day, such as catering, stewarding, selling raffle tickets, and breaking down after the show. And a big thank you to the staff of Pershore College for all their co-operation and hard work before and during the show.
I would also like to say a big thank-you to all those members, exhibitors, stewards, nurseries and visitors who attended the Pershore Show and helped to make it a great success. Everyone appeared to enjoy themselves on what was a very hot sunny day. The cream teas also went down well.
I am particularly grateful to Dave Riley who spent a good part of the day taking the money on the door. Thanks to Shelagh and Brian Smethurst who helped to run the raffle and also to Mary Randall for her help with refreshments. The staff from the Centre gave up their Saturday to help the show (and also a good part of their Friday evening to set up the event). John Fitzpatrick deserves thanks for agreeing to take on the role of show secretary in the first place as well as Jim McGregor who took on a variety of tasks. Dave Charlton was a real hero - not only did he help on the door but he stayed behind to help us clear away the tables, together with Sam & Mavis Lloyd.
With your support we can look forward to doing it all again next year!
