WHO WE ARE.

Gardeners from in, and around the Teme Valley come together to enjoy an evening in the company of like-minded people. Our members vary from those who are very new to gardening to those who have been tending their plots for decades.

We aim to entertain our members with talks by experts from all realms of gardening, help them with any gardening advice they may be seeking, organise the occasional outing, share our plants and produce and, of course, provide refreshments and time to chat.

Suggestions for speakers or activities are always welcomed by our committee and we are pleased to see the splendid gardening-themed photographs being submitted for display on our website - more please.

We are very happy for the website to be used to forward any requests for advice; questions or suggestions to which we will either respond immediately or at the following meeting.

What to do in January.

When the weather outside is cold, it's tempting to stay indoors and view your garden from the warmth of the armchair, but this is the ideal time to plan ahead and keep on top of all the tidying up after the winter storms. Remove any fallen leaves from your lawn but use planks to avoid walking on it as much as possible at this time of year. Cut off old leaves of Hellebores that produce flowers from the ground level (such as Helleborus Niger and H. Orientalis hybrids) as this will reveal the flowers and remove foliar diseases such as Hellebore Leaf Spot.

 

Meetings

 

Doors open at 7.00pm. Entrance is £2.50 which includes refreshments. Our speakers are introduced at 7.30pm.
We aim to provide a light-hearted competition, an opportunity to get advice on any gardening topic, time to shop at our plant and produce stall and a space to advertise any spare plants members wish to pass on each others.
