The gardening club meets at 7.30pm on the first Thursday of each month in Hose Village Hall.
In addition, trips and other activities are organised.
Our talks are well attended each month and cover a very varied programme delivered by enthusiastic presenters. At the end of each talk, there is time to socialise and exchange ideas with other members over tea and coffee, and often there is a Bring and Buy sale of plants and cuttings.
Talks in the past have included:
Gardening in a Changing Climate
Heucheras, Heucherella and Tiarella
Gardening with Wildlife
Alpines in the wild and cultivation
You can view this year’s programme here.
The club organises trips from time to time. Sometimes these are local and we share transport, sometimes we travel further afield and organise a coach. Often we will visit more than one destination on the same trip, and at times we gain favourable entry prices. In the past, we have organised trips to:
Belvoir Castle Gardens
David Austin Roses
Member’s Garden Tour
Each year we organise a tour of a member’s garden. This is always very popular and we ring the changes by asking for volunteers from different villages each year.
Club Members will have a wide range of expertise and knowledge, and all will want to share this with other members.
Our yearly programme ends with a social event when we indulge in wine and mince pies to round off the year.
