Hebe News – Article 1

A Short Social Media Update

As winter subsides and we all hope for a lovely welcoming spring, please can all of you highly sociable members remember that we are keen to share our interest in the wide world of social media in the form of Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

The society has accounts for all three of these ‘channels’ and the more content that I have to add to them, the wider and greater our message is to potential members as well as connecting with existing members between editions of Hebe News and our AGM.

Therefore, I request that anyone looking to provide content, be it a piece of hebe care advice, a relevant event, a bit of hebe lore or interesting backstory on a plant, or best of all pictures, please don’t hesitate to share them with me by emailing and I will endeavour to get the message out there. If you are already using social media, feel free to tag the society using the hashtag #HebeSoc and/or by including our social ‘handles’ listed below in your post. We have had some excellent Facebook posts by Sue Bosson and I will be uploading some of Tony Hayter’s wonderful hebe images soon, but we need more please.

Don’t be shy. It is a slow build, but people are warm to us and if we keep giving them good content, they will quickly share our interest and may well join the society. For any non-United Kingdom members, it would be particularly helpful if you can send images of hebes elsewhere to showcase as well as those in the United Kingdom.
