Garden Time
Would you enjoy sharing planting and landscaping ideas, and discussing soil and composting issues with other enthusiasts? We are a small informal group who meet once a month at members’ homes. We include visits to garden centres, public gardens and places of mutual interest. Normally no charge, but excursions or speakers may incur a charge for petrol, entry fees, or guest speakers. There may also be a little walking.
