Activities

 

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.

Talks

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  

Pruning Techniques

Summer Planting

Alpines in the wild and cultivation

You can view this year’s programme here.

 

Outings

 

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

Harlow Carr

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.

Expertise

Club Members will have a wide range of expertise and knowledge, and all will want to share this with other members.

December Meeting

 

Our yearly programme ends with a social event when we indulge in wine and mince pies to round off the year.
