The BBC's Instant Gardener


Friends of Sheffield Botanical Gardens (FOBS) are hosting "A Conversation with Danny Clarke", BBC's Instant Gardener on Sunday 1st October.  He is travelling up from London and will be in conversation with Jill Sinclair, chair of FOBS, and answering questions from the audience on his career and background, talking about his garden design work and also why he thinks so few black people choose horticulture as a career, both here and in the US. This promises to be a very interesting session and is open to everyone

The talk will be held in the Dorothy Fox Education Centre within the Botanical Gardens, Sunday 1st October at 2pm

Members of FOBS free, guests and visitors £3

Has anyone seen these missing squashes from Plot 98?

Message from Stephen Kirby-Smith:-

"Two of my squashes went missing between 7th and 12th September. The pumpkins are still there and only my squashes were taken which are the plants I am most proud of this year. The gate of my allotment is intact, there are no points of forced entry to my allotment. There is only one possible entrance which is safe enough to get in through which is from plot 97.  There is certainly no evidence of it being eaten by an animal.

I have informed the council allotment team and logged it with the police. 
Crime reference K120403-2017"
