After weeks of good weather, fingers were firmly crossed that it would continue for this year’s Kilmington Fayre and Flower Show – and the hopes were well and truly fulfilled when the day dawned bright and sunny. The new team of volunteers, assembled following an appeal earlier in the year, did a great job of organising the Fayre on the field behind the Village Hall, while the Gardening Club committee members organised the Flower Show displays both in the marquee and the hall.

Exhibitors of the fruit, vegetable and flower classes worried that the hot, dry conditions we had experienced would affect their entries, but there were 111 vegetable entries this year, with runner beans being the largest class. In the flower category, entries were up 11 on last year, with roses & agapanthus thriving best this year in Kilmington gardens.

The cookery, preserves, wine and beer, handicrafts, art and photography were shown to great effect in the village hall. Photos of some of the exhibits are shown here and you can find a list of the cup winners and more photos on the Show page as well as on the Kids’ Corner.

Talk of the Month

No talk in August – we’re having a holiday!

Good Gardening

Kilmington has fertile soil, soft Devon climate, and a long tradition of good gardening.

Since its foundation more than 60 years ago, the village ‘Produce Association’ has spread its influence far beyond carrots and cabbages, offering talks and demonstrations by experts who understand the needs of the novice with a window box as well as the gardener with an acre or two.

We hold a plant market, open our gardens, arrange visits and host a summer flower show as part of the Village Fayre, and are ready to share our enthusiasm for plants and gardens with everyone, old or young, resident or visitor.

 

Kilmington Kids’ Corner

Don’t forget that if you have any gardening stories or photos to share with us, we would love to hear from you!
