OCTOBER:

As Autumn arrives, with a cold snap, take time out to appreciate the changing colours and prepare for early frosts don't let them catch you out..........

  • Move your tender plants, including aquatic ones, into a greenhouse or conservatory.
  • Prune climbing roses.
  • Harvest any apples, pears, grapes and nuts.
  • October is possibly the last chance you'll have to mow lawns.
  • Don't take too long cleaning the mower. Take time out for a nice 'hot cuppa' to warm the cockles of your heart.

We are a group of people who love plants. Most of us just potter about in the garden, planting and tending hanging baskets and garden tubs. We enjoy visiting Garden Centres/ Nurseries, the occasional garden themed quiz, swapping plants and ideas and passing on tips and knowledge on 'what we have learnt about gardening' through experience.
We are always ready to Welcome New Members male or female.(new members, bring new ideas) If you are interested in being part of our group, we'd love to have your company.
