Gardening Groups

About the Groups:
Our Gardening Groups are thriving. We are split into two groups. It gives everyone a better option on days. We have lots of different ideas that we share with one another as we all know there is always something more to learn and try in a garden. We often exchange and share plants and cuttings. We also visit gardens, mainly National Garden Scheme, during Spring and Summer. When we decide to go out to visit gardens, we amalgamate the two groups.

When and where?
We meet in each others' homes and also visit various gardens during the better weather. Group One meets on a Tuesday morning once a month. Group Two meets on Thursday afternoons to enjoy visiting each other and to admire, learn and swop plants plus taking outings.Garden visits generally have a small charge for charity which often includes tea and cake. We share cars whenever possible.

The achievement of growing healthy plants, designing and maintaining our gardens, sharing spare plants and learning from each other are the aims of this gardening group, so new members will be made very welcome, size doesn't matter!

Cost?
Garden visits generally have a small charge for charity which often includes tea and cake. We share cars whenever possible.
