Gardening 2

Gardening 2

Our group started two years ago from small beginnings, steadily increasing in numbers. Some of us are experienced and knowledgeable gardeners, some of us less so, and we are all learning from each other and from the activities we organise. Whist I coordinate the group, everyone pitches in with their ideas and experience and everyone takes turn to organise our activities (though not in any strict succession). We may meet in each others’ homes but usually we’re out and about. Our meetings are on the 4th Wednesday of each month at 10.15. Sometimes we have lunch with each other afterwards. In January we plan our year, but there are always some changes as the year rolls on. At the beginning of each year everyone contributes £5 for our kitty.
I keep a book for members to see containing all communications, membership details and records of our activities and future plans.
Here are some examples of our previous activities——-
+ visits to garden centres when we are sometimes taken round by an expert guide
+ guided tours round Myddelton House, West Lodge Arboretum, Chelsea Physic Garden, Capel Manor
+ plant swap and seed swap with all of us contributing from our own gardens
+ talks by experts on garden design, planting and grouping
+ flower arranging demonstrations
+ bring a dish get together in the summer
+ Butterfly Farm
+ garden centres at Crews Hill
+ Garden of the Rose
+ Lambeth Palace Gardens
