IGPS Northern Region – Plant Sale at Rowallane Gardens
A great day at the IGPS Plant Sale at Rowallane – with Billy McCone and Barbara Kelso (Plant Sale Organiser) at the stall and ready for action. And, by all accounts, there was great action with good weather, a good attendance and big sales.
These three ladies, three generations of the one family by the way, must surely have been the best shoppers at the IGPS Plant Sale at Rowallane. What a collection of plants they have going home! It is wonderful to have people such as these supporting the plant sale; great to meet them and to share this great interest in plants. All they have to do now is find places for them in their gardens!
Many thanks to Maeve Bell for photographs and captions!
