Now is the ideal time to go garden visiting – whether its just wandering around the neighbourhood and admiring the front garden and parks as you walk past or booking a visit to one of our many local (or not so local) gardens open to the public.
Have a look at the NGS website for gardens open as part of the National Gardens Scheme, or – if you have a smart phone – download their app so you can find out about gardens open wherever you happen to be. Moreton Hall Gardens are open on Saturday 28th August for NGS – details here. There is also a Plant Fair at the Dorothy Clive Gardens on August 29th and 30th. Both of these events require that you book tickets in advance.
Another event you may wish to visit is Ashwood Nursery’s Orchid Extravaganza which is on from 28th August to 18th September.
On our ‘Links’ page you can find websites listing all sorts of gardens to visit locally and nationally and their websites will give you information on booking your visit.
A few people recently went to Bridgewater with the TSGCN group and came back full of praise. Perhaps its time to book yourself a visit there?
In the meantime your Committee held an actual face to face meeting for the first time for 18 months – details from Helen in the future – and found the flower beds full of colour; they couldn’t resist taking a few photos. You can always send your photos to us to be included here or in our photo gallery.
Don’t forget to look on our Programme page to see what is planned for the coming few months. It is updated regularly as changes are made and talks added. There are currently four talks scheduled for September with the first one on Sept 1st when Peter Moore will talk about his speciality – Buddlejas.
