2021 Programme of Monthly Meetings

We will be holding a programme of meetings this year, but via Zoom thanks to cooperation with the Barlaston Village Garden Club and the newly formed Tender Shoots Garden Club Network. Please contact them via their website or Facebook pages to join the meetings. Meetings open at 7.15 (usually) for a 7.30 start. You are welcome to attend all the the talks and events listed below, not just the ones we have sponsored. If you struggle with Zoom the talks are live-streamed on You Tube and you may find that easier.

Some of the talks are available on the Tender Shoots YouTube channel for about a month after the talk.
