The club was founded in 2008 by a group of 3 friends who were keen experienced gardeners who recognized there was a need for people with similar interests to share their knowledge in gardening. As membership has grown the Club has organized garden tours and invited speakers on relevant subjects.
The club normally meets on the second Tuesday of each month throughout the year at 11am.
New members are always welcome.
Quote of the Month
There can be no other occupation like gardening in which, if you were to creep up behind someone at their work, you would find them smiling.

These Special-offers don’t feature in their catalogue and are limited in stock. There are three types of tulip bulbs offered @ £2.50 for 10 and £7.50 for 50, which will be at these low prices until September 12th. And there is an indoor Flowering Narcissus Paperwhite Ziva bulbs @ £2.70 for 5 and £13.20 for 30 which are purported to be an absolute winner for potting inside with its tall stems of multiple white, fragrant flowers. Keep these bulbs in the fridge until you're ready to plant them and try planting them in batches for weeks of continuous flowers. Once potted and brought indoors, they will bloom within 2 to 3 weeks.
