This group is for keen gardeners wishing to make the most of their gardens month by month. Members will contribute to this practical hands on gardening by sharing good practise, and finding solutions to problems.

Lockdown news
The gardening group has remained active during lockdown through the establishment of a Whats App group & through Zoom meetings. In fact we are more active than normal with 4 meetings a month available for members to join. By splitting our whole group into two smaller groups for Zoom meetings this enables a more manageable forum for group discussions .
Whereas our new Whats App group is encouraging all members to participate in mini projects such as photographing flowers & plants by a particular colour each week, growing cut flowers from seeds & comparing their development & an ongoing mystery plant competition in each of our gardens.
We have even had a very topical photo challenge where members took pictures of self isolating plants! Looking to the future we are propagating plants for a charity plant stall to be hopefully held later in the summer.
