Our talks generally take place on the second Saturday of each month, commencing at 2:00pm.  For physical events, tea/coffee and cakes are served at a small cost, with plants, books, cards and other items available to purchase to help support the group.  There is also a raffle held at each event. These sessions take place between September and April each year, with May-August generally being set aside for garden visits. 

Wherever necessary, COVID restrictions will be fully adhered to.  We still recommend the wearing of masks, apart from when partaking in refreshments. 

 

Virtual events (using Zoom) may be used as necessary, and additional sessions may be put in place to provide more content for members.

Garden visits are separately scheduled and timed: details will be provided with each visit below and more details made available when booked.
