WELCOME TO THE GARDENING GROUP

Our meetings are informal, informative, friendly and fun.
Content varies from illustrated presentations by recognised experts in the field of horticulture, and beyond, as well as lively discussions within the group.
We stage an annual plant fair. Members are encouraged to participate in activities including Christmas wreath making. The group also disseminates information on gardens of outstanding interest.
