Dear All

I am sorry to tell you that, with great reluctance, we have decided to cancel our Spring Show planned for 28th March, because of the coronavirus outbreak.

We hope of course that this will prove to have been unnecessary, but we would rather err on the side of caution than put anyone at risk of picking up the virus as a result of the show.

As it happens, the early spring means that many of the daffodils, hellebores, camellias, primroses and other early plants will be past their best, but we can continue to enjoy them in our gardens rather than on the show bench.

We will of course keep you updated about our next scheduled events – the buying afternoon at Castle Gardens in April and the Plant Sale in May – and will be guided by health advice as this hugely worrying situation progresses.

Best wishes

Pat Cosgrove

President of the BDHA
