The Yearbook is published by the editor (currently Peter Hordern) and processed by Dave Oswald.  The 2018 edition was distributed during February.  Any queries on the content should be made to Peter Hordern and on the distribution to the membership secretary, Rachel Pearce. The bulk distribution of copies to the Distributors is still through the Secretary from whom spare copies can always be requested.

Weeders Digest.

The Weeders Digest is published twice yearly in mid Summer and at the end of the year. It is edited by Beryl Cushion, who can be contacted by e-mail (or telephone and address as for Secretary in the Yearbook). The Winter 2018-19  Weeders Digest, covering events up to the Annual General Meeting, has been published and is being distributed. Spare Digests are available from the Store when open or by contacting the Editor or Secretary - you are welcome to spread them around and give them to friends and possible new members.

Technical Notes (any queries ask the Editor)
People browsing this site have noted that the
site address which appears in the ‘address panel' or when the home page is saved to 'favourites' is <> rather than the published one of <>. This is because the latter is a easy to remember members’ address linked to the base address which is used for updating and maintenance; both should produce identical results. Feel free to use either address.

Hertfordshire Gardens Trust Researching into the county’s historic parks and gardens to build comprehensive records for use at county and national level; Working with schools to develop and sustain their grounds to
enjoy and as a resource for the curriculum; Working with English Heritage and the Garden History Society to
protect and preserve Hertfordshire's landscape heritage; events, lectures and visits.

Autumn Show Schedule.

The 2019 Show Schedule will be published separately and distributed with the Summer Weeders Digest during July, in time for the show, but hopefully not early enough to be lost before the show. Spare copies will be available at the Store or from the Secretary from late February.  Queries on content to the Show Secretary, on distribution as for the Weeders Digest.
