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.

Celebration time at Viveros Florena
15th Anniversary of the Garden Centre, Viveros Florena
10th Anniversary of my book, Mediterranean Garden Plants
We are scheduling four Open Days through the year at the Garden Centre and, on those days, there will be lots of special offers and discounts. At the Open Days, invited guest speakers will be giving a talk on gardening or a related subject, followed by free tea/coffee/soft drinks with home-made cake and, of course, I will be there with my team to answer all your gardening queries.
The dates of these Open Days – to give you plenty of warning – have been scheduled for:
1st April - Bee Day.
A specialist bee-keeper is coming to set up a working bee hive at the Garden Centre, show us how it's done and answer all our questions.
We want to make this a memorable year, so our first Open Day is Bee Day. We are going to set up a working bee hive at the Garden Centre and we hope the bees will flourish and grow with us. We think that many of you are fascinated by the world of bees, as we are, so Mick the Bee Man, a professional bee-keeper, will show us the entire set-up, explain how to look after the hive and bees and answer all our questions.
We are having placid, well-mannered bees for our tranquil setting, so come along – bee wise! There’ll be honey to buy on the day and, hopefully, we’ll soon be producing our very own Florena honey. You may even go home with a hive!
3rd June - Herb Day.
Details to be advised.

9th December - Wine Day.
A trained sommelier will be giving us lots of wine advise and tastings to put us in fine spirits for Christmas time.
All talks will start at 11am.
We’ll keep you posted on special events for the other Open Days and all that will be happening in 2015.
On top of all that, my book, Mediterranean Garden Plants, has now been around for 10 years – unbelievably! Many of you have already bought it and love it – thank you all. From 1st March and for the rest of the year, it will be at a special birthday price of €20 – a lovely gift for a birthday, house-warming or just because!
We haven’t forgotten far-flung fans either. If you purchase any item through our web page, you will be sent a 15% discount voucher off your next order. This will be valid until the end of 2015.
