Wednesday - Members day

Now the garden is complete and the show open we can all relax - not quiet! I'm responsible for the Cheshire Wildlife Trust stand, so I have to get on site early to make sure everything is OK. All the information sheets have to be put out, along with the merchandise, the stand opened up and made ready for the public. The real work starts when the public arrives; handing out leaflets, talking to people and answering questions. However we are getting loads of positive comments about the garden, and its all great fun. The sunshine all afternoon makes things even better. The garden looks lovely in the sunshine - have a look at the photos! 

Towards the end of the afternoon I have to do a turn in the Talks tent, talking about Wildlife and Gardens, of course. At the end there are some good questions (mostly about slugs), and a lot of the audience come over to visit the stand and garden. 

One of the lovely things about the Tatton show is the wonderful atmosphere. All the staff are very friendly, helpful, and very well organised. The other exhibitors are also wonderful; we all help each other out, lend tools and plants, and enjoy each others successes. It makes it a great experience, despite the hard labour and long hours.
