Colin Squire, Chairman Emeritus of Squire’s, comments: “We are so pleased to be hosting this show – which is of national interest to fuchsia growers – and supporting the British Fuchsia Society. It is a delight to see such shows return after a period of absence. Horticulture is at the heart of the Squire’s business and it is good to be able to support the industry and growers. I would like to welcome the BFS to Shepperton and wish them an enjoyable day.”
Carol Gubler of the British Fuchsia Society comments: “We are delighted that Squire’s Shepperton will be hosting this national show. After the absence of many horticultural shows over the last few years, it is wonderful that members can come together and celebrate the fuchsia in its many forms. We wish to thank Squire’s for kindly hosting this special event and brining our members together.”
The BFS was originally established in 1938 by Queen Mary who loved the plant so much, she decided to honour it by creating a dedicated society. The society continues to thrive today with its 85th anniversary taking place next year.
