Our club offers monthly talks, an annual show, plant sale and many garden visits through the year. You are welcome to get involved as much as suits you. Some people just come along to the occasional evening talk others get more involved and engage with other members and enjoy the more social side it is up to you.

Anyone is welcome, the club is open to gardeners and non-gardeners  and you can come along from anywhere. Membership is just £10 per year. You can come along as a visitor for just £2 per evening.

My Greenhouse Year

Gillian is an enthusiastic plantswoman and gardener and has many plant passions.

She is a member of the Rose Society, Historic Rose Group, Auricula Society, Garden Organic, Plant Heritage, Hardy Plant Society and some local Horticultural Societies. She volunteers for Perennial and Hampshire Gardens Trust. Retired from  veterinary work she is now enjoying the time available to further her love of horticulture. She hopes that her talks will both entertain and educate. 

‘My Greenhouse Year’

The talk will cover aspects of greenhouse design, uses including overwintering of tender plants, propagation, production of flowers and vegetables and where to visit interesting greenhouses, all from a personal perspective. It describes her journey from just having a small cold frame to now using two greenhouses, both of which are full. If you don’t have any glass in the garden at the moment this talk may convince you otherwise!
