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.

Next talk - 29th Feb 2024

Our February talk is another afternoon one, this time by Patricia Elkington.

Patricia Elkington is highly respected within the National Garden Scheme and has in the past been the County organiser - although now ‘retired’ Patricia still opens her ‘Little Court’ garden for the NGS.

‘Little Court’ first opened for the National Garden Scheme in 1984 and over the years Patricia has refined the planting into what is now one the the most popular gardens in the Hants NGS.

As for the overall look of the garden Patricia says, “There was a temptation to try and grow some of everything, but then I found I shouldn’t, a more tranquil effect is given with repetition of key plants.”

For our Garden Club Patricia will talk about how colour can be misused and how less really can be more.

‘The Harmonious Garden’ - the use and misuse of colour in gardens

February 28th  2:00 pm  - 2024 at Ibsley Village Hall BH24 3NL
