2020 SPRING PLANT SALE A GREAT SUCCESS

This year’s September plant sale was held in the Goody Patch rather than on Goodwood Road in front of the Goodwood Primary School. Despite some concerns that visitors to the Patch might be few there was a constant stream of people throughout the morning. Sales were the best we have had and the consensus was that combining plant sales and an opportunity for the community to enjoy the garden was a winning combination – to be repeated. And despite a warning of heavy downpours the sun shone and the weather was perfect.
