About Us and Membership Form

Formed in 2005 as a result of a village appraisal in which a Gardening Club was requested. Since then we have gone from strength to strength and now have over 100 members.

Meetings are held on the first Tuesday in each month with the exception of July, when it is the second Tuesday.  There is no meeting in January. From October through to April (with the exception of December and January), meetings start at 7.30 pm and  are held in the Arbuthnot Hall, Shamley Green where we have a speaker. In March we generally have a well known celebrity gardener as our speaker.   Helen Yemm, Bon Flowerdew, and Joe Swift are among the many who have been to visit us.  From May to July, and in September, we have visits to local gardens.  Often these are evening visits, but occasionally a daytime outing will be organised.  

We have an annual show at which all members are encouraged to enter.  The show is followed by a barbecue or Hog Roast.  For our December meeting we enjoy a festive meal in The Bricklayers Arms with a quiz.

An annual coach holiday visiting gardens throughout the country is also arranged for members.
