At our June meeting we had a very informative talk from Kevin Higgins about Hydroponics. Kevin used photographs to show us the process and brought along a container of silver beet growing hydroponically. There was much interest and lots of questions. There was the usual competition in 6 categories (see the winners in each category), a well-stocked sales table, a raffle and a delicious supper. It was good to see so many members braving the cold.
Titahi Bay Horticultural Society have invited local Porirua primary schools to be a part of our Great Daffodil Grow and Show event at our Spring Flower Show. We've provided them with bulbs, potting mix, buckets and help from our members. 18 schools in the Porirua area have entered our inaugural Daffodil Grow and Show. Children are busy planting their daffodils and will then show them at our spring show in the last weekend in August.
