We hope that you will find this website a useful resource for both the Club’s activities and for other  related gardening information.

The details of all of the Club’s meetings and other events are clearly shown with much more information available for those who require it. Click here for the 2020 programme to see what is happening this year. A lot of the exciting events are already in the diary but there are still some that need to be confirmed, so keep checking for all the latest updates. To download a printable copy of the Calendar for 2020 click here.

Access to information on past events can be navigated to by scrolling down to the links at the bottom (in the dark area) of this and every other page. They can also be navigated to, from the appropriate year Programme page, and clicking the link in the “Info” column, appropriate to the meeting.

There are plans to build on the success of the 2019 programme of the members opening their gardens to other members throughout the summer. This provided a very sociable opportunity to get together and chat about garden problems over a cup of tea and cake. For more information on the Open Gardens click here. If you would like to open your garden in 2020 for members and their friends to visit, please contact a member of the committee. Members’ gardens are opened to members and their friends/families only and are not publicised to the public.

Following the success of the clubs participation in the Heritage Exhibition last September in theTrefonen Village Hall, the club will be encouraging members to include and increase sustainable gardening techniques in 2020, for the future benefit of the environment.

Last year the new format of the competition had been a much appreciated addition to the monthly club meetings and we will be continuing this in 2020, from the March to October meetings. There was a wide variety of entries at the meetings. These ranged from colourful displays of springtime plants, to home propagated and grown plants and vegetables. To have a look at the monthly entries in 2019, click here. For more information about the competition, including how to enter, click here.

The speaker for the January meeting was Imogen Jackson, Head Gardener at  Horatio’s Garden Gobowen Orthopaedic Hospital (pictured right). It was interesting to hear not only about specific gardening issues, but also how the garden and related areas had been designed to maximise the benefits for people with spinal injuries and their families and friends.

February sees the return of our increasingly popular Fun Quiz, which is not garden focused. This is on Thursday 20th February. For further details click here. You can bring your own team (maximum 6 people) or join a team on the night.. It promises to be a fun evening with light refreshments and prizes. Please bring your own drinks There will be an interesting variety of quiz rounds-probably not the usual!
