On-line payments for National Membership & Seeds
The National HPS have now provided a way for members to renew their membership on-line, and order seeds from the 2016 Seed Catalogue.
Renew your national membership using this link: http://hardyplant.innuodesign.co.uk/subscriptions. Your national membership lasts from Jan 1st to Dec 31st each year, so please renew soon if you have not already done so. Membership of the National HPS is required if you wish to remain a member of a local group.
Order seeds from the 2016 catalogue using this link: http://hardyplant.innuodesign.co.uk/seed-orders
Both options lead you through the order process, and let you pay on-line using your credit or debit card, or PayPal account.
You should receive your printed copy of the Seed Catalogue soon and, if you prefer, use the paper order form on the back page.
Seed orders will only be sent to paid-up national members, so if you need to renew, please do that first. Anyone who has already renewed will receive their seeds as normal.
The committee page is now updated to reflect the AGM, with contact details of all members of the committee. The committee page is password protected, if you need the password use the contact form on the website.
Next meeting – the Herts HPS Christmas Party!
The final meeting of 2015 is coming up on Saturday the 5th of December. The speaker will be Stefan White, with a talk entitled ‘Skulduggery in the Shrubbery’, the intriguing story of the Tradescants, father and son, who were master plantsmen and gardeners to the aristocracy in the reign of Charles I. The talk describes the fascinating ups and downs in the life of these 17th Century pioneers who were widely-travelled plant hunters, collectors of curiosities, and founders of the world’s first museum.
Stefan’s talk will be followed by our Christmas Party. The party will include our usual yuletide celebration, with festive cheer provided by the Committee’s sparkling bucks fizz. Please bring a plate of nibbles to share, savoury or sweet, on a paper plate to avoid washing-up. Gluten-free contributions particularly welcome.
No cutlery is available so please bring finger-food which does not require heating. If you need to bring your food in a tin/plastic container, please unpack the food on arrival and return the container to your car. Floral or twiggy table decorations would be very welcome too.
In case you like a nostalgic reminder of the feast from last year, here are the photos: https://hertshps.com/2015/01/10/2014-christmas-party/
Hope to see you next weekend!
