Gardening group II
Welcome to the Gardening Groups page
We have divided into two groups and our dates and days are variable depending on visits availability. At times the groups join together for a visit if the numbers are low or if a special visit is arranged by either group.
We had a very successful first year last year with a mixture of visits to NGS gardens, a talk from a large garden centre, local visits to various gardens that had been renovated. Where we could see the hard work that had taken place, eg. Compass Garden. To end the year members had a fun afternoon making their own Christmas wreaths for their front doors.
This year our programme is shaping up but is always open to changes depending on availability.
March - a visit to Pembury House near Clayton, Hassocks
April - by popular demand, another Easter wreath making session. A possible visit to Penns Rocks
May - visit other members gardens
June - South of England show at Ardingly
July - Hampton Court flower show
August - A visit to an NGS garden
September - Possible visit to Coolings garden centre with a talk
October - NT Garden, possibly Sheffield Park for Autumn colour
November - A speaker TBA
December - Christmas wreath making, once again!
All visits are subject to change depending on interest and numbers.
We are happy to have suggestions and ideas from group members and hope to invite some local speakers to talk about their projects.
