Mansfield & District

Gardening

Mansfield U3A Gardening group arranges a varied programme designed to help members learn together in a friendly, informal manner. The annual programme extends from March until December and includes topical talks by horticultural specialists. The subject matter each month is wide and varied and includes topics to suit all gardening tastes. The programme also includes two visits to outstanding gardens at group discount rates.
There is a small charge for the meetings; however refreshments are included.

We meet on the first Tuesday in the month, from March until December. Our programme offers variety and, we hope, some fun. Please contact me, if you require more information, using the bird link above or phone 01623 635607 and check the Events page.

Dates for your Diary
Tue Sep 4th Neil Timm. The World of Ferns.

Neil has many gold medals for his award winning ferns.
This is a wide ranging talk about all aspects of ferns, their Natural History, Economic Uses, Folklore, where to see them, and of course all about growing them in the garden. The aim is to make this much more than a catalogue of plants. Hopefully there will be some plants for sale.

The restored Victorian gardens are home to a collection of grand gardens in miniature, filled with colourful seasonal plantings and displays.
Stroll through the statue walks, the fern dell grotto and the beautiful wild rose dell.
Take in romantic views of the formal gardens and pleasure grounds from the restored summerhouse, and enjoy the period bedding plants in the Flower Garden.
