Kate Gieler, publicity officer, said: "We had a superb selection, all at very reasonable prices, mainly grown and donated by our members.

"It all sold out very quickly and as ever is a popular event, so we are always happy when the sun shines.

"It was lovely to see so many regular friendly faces and some new ones, too. Thanks to everyone who came along to support us. We hope you enjoy your plants."

The annual plant sale raises funds for the society. Visit www.sfhorticulturalsociety.org.uk for more information.
