Gardening Group


We are an informal group who meet monthly to share our love of gardens and plants and to exchange ideas, information, and spare plants.

We are avid supporters of the National Open Gardens scheme and visit as many as we can within a two hour drive. Garden Centres and plant fairs are also often included for our visits.

Our group is now too large for home gatherings but we make use of local facilities for planning meetings and the occasional speaker or quiz.
