The Princess Royal has accepted an invitation to become Patron of the Royal Three Counties Show.

Only last year, the Show was granted a prestigious Royal title – further endorsing its place as one of Britain’s top agricultural events.

Organiser, the Three Counties Agricultural Society, said it was thrilled with news of the patronage, which would help to strengthen the Royal connection, and give additional credence to its work to promote food, farming and rural enterprise.

Said Chief Executive, Ken Nottage: “We are naturally delighted that Her Royal Highness has agreed to be Patron of our Show. As a resident of Gloucestershire, she has a strong personal connection with one of the counties our organisation represents, and has always been supportive of events here.

"A Royal patronage adds weight to our efforts to make the Royal Three Counties the very best it can be, and I am sure that Her Royal Highness’s presence at Shows will be a source of delight for all the exhibitors, competitors, traders, visitors, staff and volunteers, who play a part in staging the event each year.”

HRH The Princess Royal is very familiar with the Three Counties Showground, having first visited in 1976, and served as the Society’s President in 1981.

In 1986, she was in Malvern again to open the new Members’ Complex overlooking the Main Arena, and in 2006, she attended the National Pony Society’s 100th Summer Championship Show and the National Sheep Association Show.

In 2010, she was guest of honour at the Malvern Spring Gardening Show (now the RHS Malvern Spring Festival), as part of its 25th birthday celebrations.

The Royal Three Counties Show has been promoting breed development, commercial farming and food production for more than two centuries, and brings pedigree livestock from across the country to Malvern.

It hosts many national breed society shows and the largest Rare & Minority Breeds Show in Britain, supports traders and local schools and colleges, and now sponsors a Nuffield Scholar each year.

Aside from food and farming, it is a source of entertainment and a great day out for families from in and around the region.

This year’s Royal Three Counties Show takes place from 13th – 15th of June.

"They did do a 1.1 but as I said, the "cutters" are too wide and foul part of the saw.

"I got some from https://www.ukcustomcovers.com on their eBay shop for my bench seat set up van and they are still ok 2.5 years later if not a little grubby and dusty. Fit well for all the bits around the seats and folding areas"

"No clue I’m afraid - I purchased whatever was listed on their website for my ground saws and they fit. 
Our pole pruners stay sharper for much longer than the ground saws (ms280 and ms360) as they aren’t used anywhere near the ground and are always…"

Graham Taylor replied to Ben Mallow's discussion Scarify before spray?
"I'd weedkill first... once the weeds are dying off nicely, then scarify.  If you scarify first, you may well not have any decent leafgrowth on the weeds for the selective to work."

Duncan McLaren replied to Edward baker's discussion What to wear while spraying
"Well there's a question I'm not too sure about and you wouldn't want to wear a knapsack sprayer with them.
But one thing I'm sure of is that when it's a warm clammy day and you've got 16 back courts to spray I wouldn't fancy changing disposable cove…"

Andrew Watts replied to Ben Mallow's discussion Scarify before spray?
"Ideally you'll want to do no weed control 2 months pre and 2 months post scarification/seeding. So doing weed control now would mean Scarify end october, so should be ok, but won't recover as much by Xmas if you scarify say mid sept. We don't tend t…"

I'm going to be applying a selectivie - most likely Mogul - to a clients lawn soon, as well as scarifying, before reseeding (once interval between spray and seeding is up). Should I apply the selective before scarifying or after?

"Bib 'n' brace oilskins can be useful in warmer weather if using a hand-sprayer. They give plenty of ventilation and can be used indefinitely if washed down after use."

"I can't comment on the pole saw but we use the Rotatech chains on our other Stihl chainsaws and in our opinion they seem to stay much sharper for much longer than the Stihl equivalents - and they are much cheaper too!"

"Along with wellies and correct nitrile gloves we would also recommend a green or blue suit for the reasons Gary's mentioned above!
For our spraying register we use the built in version Jobber offers which is dead easy to use too!"
