The Garden Group is for everyone who loves gardening and visiting gardens. The programme consists of talks and demonstrations during the winter months and garden visits through the summer. We try to find unusual gardens and private gardens where the owner can show us around or famous gardens guided by the head gardener. In this way we hope to learn and gain inspiration from experts so as to add to the enjoyment we get from gardening.
We enjoyed a very successful programme in 2018 with increasing numbers attending both meetings and garden visits. Here are some of the highlights.
In May we visited Howick Hall at tulip time and were shown round by an enthusiastic volunteer.
In July the 3 day trip to Dumfries and Gallowy was a great success. The weather was sunny and the gardens were wonderful.
Lambshield near Hexham was our last visit of the year. An immaculate garden worth visiting again.
