Gardening Club

All Clubs and Groups


Everyone who loves gardening is warmly welcomed to the Gardening Club. We are a mix of beginner and experienced gardeners with information and enthusiasm to share. We have a programme of 14 lectures this year for you to enjoy.

Hopefully, we will be able to meet in person at the Guild again, but if Covid restrictions are in place the speakers will give zoom lectures. We look forward to plant sales, plant raffles, browsing through our library of gardening books and coffee breaks for face-to-face chats. With luck, we will also be able to resume our outings to gardens and nurseries. Website The Guild Gardening Club Programme 2021-22
