Autumn round up

Autumn is a busy time in the garden, clearing away the decaying vegetation of the summer and preparing the garden for the cold winter months ahead. Let the big clear up begin!

Here are a few more tips for gardening at this time of year


And also it's the catch up on Garden Club activities over the summer.


Members who won cups and trophies are reminded to return them to any committee member before 1st November please.

Autumn Programme


The Autumn season kicked off with a talk by Jeremy Wilson from Torquay who gave us an insight into the Scented Garden.


A true nurseryman at heart visited us in October and his knowledge of his plants that he brought along was abundant.  Peter Cantrill from Farringdon runs a wholesale nursery at Dayspring Plants near Exeter Airport but welcomes visitors from garden clubs by prior arrangement.

Members were so enthusiastic about the plants that he had brought with him from the nursery there was a rush of sales at the end of the evening.

November - Tuesday 24th at 7.30pm at The Memorial Hall

This is our charity evening when Ros Nichols will be showing some of her wonderful slideshows of visits to various gardens.

Local MS group representative Sue West will be available for any questions regarding MS & the charities activities locally.

This year's charity is the MS Society and all proceeds of the raffle and the teas will be donated to the cause, close to some members hearts.
